Hello Everyone, and Welcome to this site. Helen Murray Writes offers lateral thinking on many issues and welcomes your responses. Helen is a creative writer and tackles topical issues through stories, poetry, and even the occasional article. Some of these writings may suit your own projects, and if they are downloadable you are welcome to use them as you wish. In the Christmas season, for birthdays, or no reason at all, you may find that Poetry with Punch makes a gift which will work for your family way into the future.
Poetry has a special 'Je ne sais quoie' which is very powerful. I'm sure there is a poem you remember from your past which affects you even now at times. The power of words, for better or for worse, is ..... (You can fill in the word! explosive? exponential? giddy?) The emotions of animals are much the same as our own, yet by words we have our definition - and by words we define ourselves - in a major degree.
'In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God. And the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was the Life, and the Life was the light of men." John 1:1-4. "Genesis 1:26, 27, "Let us make man in our own image, according to our likeness.......So God created man in His own image, In the image of God He created him, male and female He created them." Think about the ramifications of that! We are actually made in the image of The Word!
In these pages I hope to offer memorable, constructive, imaginative, wonderful words.
