Intentional words

Intention in a poem or story is when your heart skips a beat or your breath is taken away or tears flow, and when the author is able to say, “Good. I meant to do that.”

That’s intentional, that’s wonderful, that’s the author using words in a certain way.

Intentional – wonderful – certain – all words that have the power to mean so such more than they mean in everyday life.

A certain way: A particular method but also a method used with intention and certainty.

Wonderful: Full of wonder.

Intentional: Done with clear intent.

When the art is crafted intentionally, the result is certain wonder.
