An ode to poetry

What is poetry to me

A chance and opportunity

To break out and break free

From the gilded cage

Imprisoning me

To dream of stars

And cosmic themes

To pontificate on nature

And the wonder it gives

To rant to rage about social things

And make a stand environmentally

To speak of love straight from the heart

To weave words of spiritual sparks

To create verses hoping to paint a masterpiece

This is what poetry means to me.

  1. Poetry to me
    How I purge incessantly
    The impurities that clog my being

    How I peel off the many layers of emotions
    Accumulated over time
    Through statements with little or no periods.
