Roger B. Humes

I Placed Stones In My Words

I placed stones in my words
and screamed at the ocean
until i could hear them whisper over the waves

I placed my soul in exile
and reached through the walls
to touch a world which wouldn't heed my thoughts

I placed my eyes in the garden
and learned to listen quietly
for the opening and closing of the dew glistened rose

I placed my feet upon a path
and realized that i could never turn back
until i could hear my words whisper over the waves
