Loving Words

A poet is, before anything else,
a person who is passionately in love with language.
W. H. Auden

In the beginning was the WORD
and the WORD was with God
and the WORD was God...
The WORD became flesh
and made his dwelling among us.
John 1:1, 14

I love words.
I love those who craft beautiful and compelling words.
I love how the right words move and stir me.

Words, language, speech...
Logical words, emotional words, imaginative words...
Blunt, nuanced, sophisticated, or obscure...
