Poetry in motion

I was witness to poetry in motion
amidst all the world’s chaos and humdrum

As the sun lazily rose from its eastern bowers
this bare backed man presented quite a picture

He gracefully lowered his oar with a soft swish
moving slowly looking for fish

Rowed his makeshift boat on scooter tyres
the lone kayaker on lake waters.

for Backwards poem contest by Matt Caliri
