Words make worlds

Without a name made in our mouths, an animal or place struggles to find purchase in our minds or our hearts.*
Tim Dee

Bring light to all that is overcast.**
Plotinus

Words help us understand
and enable us to share;
The words of others have been light for us,
So that we might not only see, but also
know, and we can
be light to others:
Words make worlds.^
