Contributor Series 6: A Currency of Words
Word’s Worth
By William C Ross

Scriptures on cathedral walls.
Graffiti scrawls on restroom stalls.
A word’s true worth is the thought behind it,
And poetry is where you find it.



Dark Day (September 2010) is the most recent by William C Ross to appear at vox poetica.

    Ahhh. Profound, or profane, words have their meaning and their use. You’ve said so much in so few words,William C. Ross! Thank you!

  2. Maureen says:

    I love the idea of the sacred and the profane leading to such a profound yet simple truth. Wonderfully done!

  3. Simple lines on poetry’s walls. Nice one.
