Where did all the words go to?
The ones that we once used to speak with.
Will they or will they not come back?
I do not know the answer to that question.
.They seem to have wandered off aimlessly from one place to another,
flying about like moths & butterflies.
With just one glance, as quick as the burn of a flame; all the words have disappeared.
There is nothing more to say.
"Ho! o Saki, pass around and offer the bowl:
For love at first appeared easy, but difficulties have occurred" -Hafez
