Poetry

Poetry

The sweetness
           of language
that celebrates
           the sweetness
of life

hymn ode or epic
           poetry is verbal
constellation
           the bloodflow
of language

a newborn child
           pressed to its
mother’s chest
           carried with pride
through the vibrant
           streets

boy or girl
           the eyes yet to focus
born into words of love
           born into the love
of words

poetry that rises
           above the prosaic
is revelation
           of truth and beauty
is fresh anthem
           of the beating heart
