How Poetry's Conveyed
Picture, an infant’s garbled talk,
or a feather tickling your cheek.
Water, cascading over rock,
or the laugh of a chuckling creek.
or the pain of a single tear.
or paralyzing bouts of fear.
The spectacle of a sunrise,
or the coo of a turtle dove.
The wonder in a baby’s eyes,
or memories of your first love.
A saffron moon's celestial light,
or mountains glistening with snow.
A sprig of stars, hung on the night,
or a day watching tulips grow.
Mix all those thoughts, as they're dealt,
in experiences relaid.
Now put to paper, feelings felt,
for that's how poetry’s conveyed.
