Poetry Is


Poetry is

Calm before the storm,

Rain down a window pane.

Sunshine on newly fallen snow,

Wind between the leaves of trees.

Poetry is

Our best kept secrets,

Our worst experiences.

The story of our greatest triumphs,

The words we hold inside.

Poetry is

The death of a loved one,

The birth of a child.

A teenager’s first kiss,

A couple’s last dance.

Poetry is


And everything that comes with it.

The good,

The bad,

The terrible,

The beautiful.
