Careless Words

leaves plucked
from childhood trees

and pebbles scuffed
with the shoe,

seem flecks of

tossed to the wind,

bits and crumbs
brushed to the floor

delighting the dog,
and heedlessly

wounding the soul

*Careless words stab like a sword,
but the words of the wise bring healing. (Proverbs 12:18)

*…on the day of judgment people will give an account
for every careless word they have spoken… (Matthew 12:36)
