I Don't Write Poems

I don’t write poems, 
I drink them like wine, 
I become tipsy 
with each coming line. 

I don’t write poems, 
I breathe them like air, 
I become so happy 
when each one I share.   

I don’t write poems, 
I live with them; 
they prolong my years, 
they are as true as I am. 

I don’t write poems, 
I weave into verses 
sadness, joy, tears, 
prayers, love, curses… 

My poems talk and sing, 
Sense of living they bring.

I love your poem. Poetry is so much more then putting pen to paper. Congrats for your featured poem Larisa. Keep drinking, breathing, living and weaving your poems so we can hear them sing here on Poetry Soup. If you like, read, 'On This October Day' and 'Whiteness'. Smiles your way, Constance

A beautiful couplet thanks Larisa...are you a 1st generation Ukrainian woman? New to the United States or do you live in the Ukraine? Excuse my inquiry if you do not want to answer!
