Poetry Becomes You

Poetry weaves simple fabric 
into threads of fine tapestry
to touch the weave as soft as 
wool yet, it can also be as course
as blue steel. Feelings curl together
in waves that shift and rise from 
the open sea to the white sandy 
shore. Those who travel deep, 
dress in the finest silk and find 
the inner sanctum. The price they 
pay are words curling into broad 
and fine sequins. The royal dress
brings lilac and gold which refine
antiques into poetic freedom.
