Poetry is not the written word

Or ink gracefully and artistically drawn on paper

Poetry is a fond memory that comes to us 

unexpectedly - 

In the most sporatic times

And brings a smile to our face

It makes us remember

The times when we were happy and content

or incredibly sad

Poetry is not forced.

It is a nostalgic song

Or the way someone tells you they love you

Or the way someone leaves

Poetry is not just the hello 

or the goodbye

It's the everything

It's the way the grass sways gently in the breeze

And the way we see clouds as different animals and shapes

It's everyone's different perspective on this beautiful world

In ways we might have never thought about collectively 

It's all poetry
