A Dream To Ponder

In my dream I’m forced

to go on a word  diet

which I don’t do without protest.

Upon awakening

I consider what would happen

if I took in only

that which feeds my soul. I know

I wouldn’t dine solely

on saccarine or sugar –

my selection would include 

spice and have a little bite,

but if I used soul feeding as my measure,

I’d certainly be more thoughtful

about my choice of words

and how they affect my health.
