A Word Is Dead...

--
Emily Dickinson 1830 - 1886

A word is dead
When it is said,
Some say.
I say it just
Begins to live
That day.

I love the poem, and I agree when a word or poem is written or said that is when it is created and begins to live...some great words all strung together like a pearl necklace live long lives in our books, videos, films and now on our blogs...the word is not dead at all...they live in our minds.

to island rambles: How wonderfully said! Yes, I entirely agree as with the poem as with you. The said (or written) words are released to live their own life among us.

to Rima: Pleased to meet you, too. Your hermitage is trully wonderful place:-) And thank you for kind comment:-)
