images and words

images and words
fly through the air
searching for a form
searching for a poem
to call their own

An old poem, from years ago

now that I know
their name
I see them everywhere

I also shared this poem on my site, Poems For Bulletin Boards, on September 13, 2017, with a different picture. Teachers are welcome to use my poems in their lessons, with proper credit. There is a simple language lesson in this poem.
