What is a Poem? – Poem 25/30

Poems

are pictures painted with words,

telling a story

no one has heard

quite that way before.

 

A Poem

is a pause,

an attempt to express

effect and cause

with an intensity

that conversation can’t.

 

Poetry,

be it prose or rhyme

depicts our human experience

withstanding the test of time

as the calendar may change

but people – our emotions

remain ever the same.
