What is Poetry: To Me

What Poetry Means to Me:

Poetry is a voice for the voiceless

Living words wrapping around us as a shield in the war of life

Touching the secret heart in us no one can see

Explaining who we are at our core

A hand caressing a face 

A hug for the unhuggable 

A peg for our proverbial hat

A kiss from someone with love

Abandon to our wild

A piercing pain to be released on the page

An incessant voice in our minds telling us to WRITE WRITE WRITE

Poetry for me is home……
