A Reader, A Writer


A writer is a person who paints,
whose pallet holds words
whose mind holds visions.
A mind filled with joy and thoughts.

A reader is a person with the gift
of seeing the meaning of the writer's work
and hears the voiceless message
who sees the colorless picture.

But the reader and the writer
hold one thing alike,
an imagination.

Rosa Citlali Zamora
