When words will not do.

As a burgeoning belletrist
vocabulary is a must;
from abecedarian
to erudite, savvy—nonplussed.

Yet today this wordsmith,
this sorcerer of speech
had her tongue firmly tied
and her magic breached.

For what word can describe
a day so complete?
Perfect is not sufficient,
nor is blissful, replete.

On a day so magnificent,
perhaps long words won’t suffice.
Perhaps a short word will do,
a word like happy, or light.

No, words will not do.
Instead, I can only breathe in,
beam up a smile
and love life to the brim.
