Image Surrounded By Words

I have sketched your image on my paper Then words came out to surround your presence The words wafted higher than the image Went and moved around catching air currents Beauty surrounded my drawing with ease A heart was enveloped there inside her But it was words that described her being That’s what brought her life, it was the answer So this image, consumed by many words I fling this image into the high sky Its beauty caresses those around it Words brighten all their lives, so they can fly Absorbed are more words from seasoned poets Listening to their lives as it goes on Flying by the highest point it ignites Sending ash to my feet just like the dawn I hold the remains inside of my hand Just by magic it goes back to true form Beautiful girl on a page of paper With many words now on it to transform It peeks my mind to see all these poems Created by the flying of this show And its corresponding words to then see We are all poets, just that some don’t know
