You're a Poet

This is a short poem dedicated to all of my fellow poets on this site. We know who and what you are.


You're a Poet, but you don't just write poems, you're so much more gifted with the power of perception, knowing how to make hearts soar compelled to share your heart's impressions, both the good and the bad taking the beautiful and lyrical, making them happy, and sometimes sad You're a Poet, writing poetry, sharing imagination with a flowing creativity wanting to bring people close, ever watchful to avoid unwanted negativity coming from the Greek word poietes, poet, which means maker or to make allows us to appreciate each other as poets, life's all about the give and take You're a Poet, loving the world and the people in it, wanting to see the truth knowing your limitations and flaws, always open to introspection and proof self driven from a powerful force within, and needing to share your thoughts you tailor words just so, keeping your objectivity intact, as your poetry talks You're a Poet, unlike the rich and wealthy, your treasure will never be stolen a power to create, using the simplest of tools, even with a measured semi-colon you have a venue for sharing and caring, you warm the feelings of those around drawing people into your inner world, giving them words with a beautiful sound You’re all Poets, all having the power, and making the difference to someone dear never stop giving of yourselves, because so many find direction in what you share so to all of you calling yourself poet, my friendship and admiration for you is clear honorably spreading messages of hope, by disseminating poetry to those that care
