OF WHAT POETRY IS

OF WHAT POETRY IS

Written

A VOCAL PAINTING
FOR PAINTING
IS SILENT POETRY
A HOUSEHOLD MELODY
OF SONG AND DANCE
A PAINTING SPEAKING
TO YOU, TO ME.

A UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE
AS HEART HOLDS
WITH NATURE ITSELF
A THING WORTH REMEMBERING
IN LIFE
ALL THINGS REFLECT
ON OR OF POETRY.

POETRY IS OF A COUNTRY’S HISTORY
A STORY TOLD
BOOKS OF THE BIBLE
WAS USED TO TELL HISTORY
THROUGH THE AGES
YOUR CHILD’S FAVORITE
STORY OR NURSERY RHYME.

OF STRIFE, WAR, HATE, OR CON FUSION
YOU HAVE TO ASK
HOW CAN ONE LOVE THYSELF
WITHOUT POETRY
IS IN EVERY ASPECT
OF LIFE OR DEATH
JOY, LAUGHTER, AND PLEASURE.

THAT BOOK OF FICTION
YOU LOVED READING
AN ADVERTISEMENT,
A SALES PITCH
THAT EMOTIONAL PART OF NATURE
ALWAYS WILL BE OF ALL THINGS
REASONS, OPINIONS, ILLUSIONS,
A VISION, OR FEELINGS
EVEN A VERSION OF TRUTH
ONE NEVER SEES
A SYMPHONY OF LIFE
SO MANY WAYS OF SAYING
WHAT POETRY IS.

WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL THE
WRITERS AND POETS THAT
INSPIRED ME TO WRITE THIS PIECE.
