Why do poetry?

Why do poetry?

So you did live?


and since you did


you did smile?
and of course
wept too…??

Wept with your heart?

the same heart that loved
one time or other…

a love of laughs?
and


tears too?



To fill a pen
Over a paper?

Pretty. That's all I want to say--though it doesn't seem very nice, such brevity. But I promise I mean it in the most respectful sincerity.

Free Spirit said...

yes,
because, I, indeed,
lived.
smiled.
wept.
with my heart,
that loved
one time or another.
a love with laughs
and tears too.
to fill a pen
over paper.

and give form to an experience that cannot be tied down in words.
