Imaginations

Imaginations

Of course poetry may dwell
on the surface of things
but words are not surfaces
and their significance
runs deeper than we might
in reality imagine 

the unblemished rose
is one thing
and the imagined world
quite another

poetry is the magnificent
cause of being

and if at all
we only ever exist
in the reality
of the imagination
and beauty is
what is taken
to the heart
