I am Poetry

I read words on a page
Through my eyes
Traveling to my brain
Deceminated to my heart
Absorbed by my soul
Changed in subtle ways
The extending of me

Breath added to my breath
Mingling with my dreams
All my pain and laughter
Inside me crying to be free

Essential vibration
My whole body sings
I am poetry
Filled to the brim
Unable to be contained 

From my soul 
Flowing through my heart
Traveling to my brain
My hand grabs a pen
Soon there are words on a page

Before my very eyes
A new child is born
I am the father of poetry
I am also it's child
Please embrace the scent of me
The emotion of my being

Parts of you in me
All are connected
Creativities stream
Out there to be seen
Until we all see

Each life is poetry




How poetry has become me contest

    Your poetry is a real extension of yourself, as you say it so well, Rick! And your poems have always been such plain, elegant and living testimonies of your real life and being; and we are all proud of your "work" among us: no need to say how much you deserve our praise and this first place in the contest! Hugs, Hanitra

    Poems changing your life in subtle ways. That was a cool way to put it. Whether or not we realize it, we affect each person who reads, because you are a sharing the essence of yourself, your TRUE self. We need words to make the message clear, but what we are actually doing is extending our thoughts and feelings, hoping for somebody in the world to be touched by it. Good luck on the contest!
