When all poets – united- raised their voices as one to the heavens, 
God opened his window and shouted,
“What’s That Racket!?”
Gabriel explained about the poets
“Oh,” God said, shutting his window
but not entirely- leaving it cracked open slightly
He watched the words bounce around the room
grow legs and go about their business
God nodded sagely. ..this is how he designed words
-to never return empty
but accomplish what they were sent out to do
He smiles at his poets
-watching the constant stream of words in the ether
watching them burrow into fertile minds
igniting inspiration
awakening dreams
lifting hopes
-accomplishing that which they were sent out to do
