Whittled words, fitly fashioned;
Hesitant but impassioned.
Breath of God, humble desire;
Touch these words with holy fire.
In 1998, while navigating a challenging life event, I crafted this poem that now serves as a poignant reminder, guideline, and overarching description of my writing: Whittled Words. These chiseled words are intentionally fitted for sound and sense.
