Is the soul of literature
The heart of being human
The nature of us all

Poetry is
A magnifying glass, a microscope
That peers at the tiniest particle
Of earthy mundane life
And elevates it to grandeur

Poetry, to me
Is a wake-up call
To look around
And perceive things differently

A window
Through which to observe
The minute
And think great thoughts

Poetry is
Fragments of life
Photographic, surreal
The stained broken glass
Of imagination

Poetry was
Verses on parchment
The voice of song
Rhyme and reason
With folded wings

But now it is free
An exuberant bird
Released to soar
And startle the mind.
