What Do We Say

Why do we say
peach pit instead of seed
or gaggle of geese
school of fish
creating word images
that delight?

Words can be fun
crossword puzzles
scrabble, limericks
we love to play with words.

Yet all too often we use
them poorly
harming another
with careless comments.

Choose your words carefully
speak only with love.
