Say Gentle – 31 NaPoWriMo

This word pairings prompt seems a call for the return of emotion management where relationship is more precious than emotion of the moment. Bonus Day 31 NaPoWriMo but tune in tomorrow for a grand finale bonus poem.  

31 Say Gentle

Say Gentle

Truth with soft edges
and warm eyes.
Say gentle your peace
when it will matter.
Quiet thy heavy tongue
when it does not serve.

    Hi Dawn, through Na/GloPoWriMo, I learned of your book World-Stamp Poems. Congratulations on this creative gift to the world. My copy just arrived this morning. Perhaps someday you might add a Tanzanian stamp to your future collection. May positive poetry keep finding you! You can check me out at
