Poem: "Casting the Circle of Words"

This poem came out of the March 2, 2010 Poetry Fishbowl.  It combines prompts from flutterbychild, wyld_dandelyon, and siege.  It was sponsored by janetmiles.  I would really enjoy trying this one in a ritual someday! See a scrapbooked version of this poem.

Casting the Circle of Words


We are casting the circle of words.
We are summoning the sacred space of speech.

We are calling the quarters:
Nouns, the things
Adjectives, the descriptions
Verbs, the actions
Adverbs, the refinements

We are calling the cross-quarters:
Pronouns, the replacements
Conjunctions, the joints
Prepositions, the relationships
Interjections, the accents

We are summoning the sacred space of speech.
We are casting the circle of words.
