Poetry: “Poetry and me”

A free form poem about the art form itself.


Poetry and me


To write poetry I find’s

Like painting pictures

Just with words

Put a word there

Here a space

Skip a line

And punctuate


Slowly crafting

To be read

Images that you might enjoy

Telling stories

Some with rhymes

Sneaking in some meaning there

Social issues

Nature facts

Inspiration’s everywhere


Now I pity

Those who can’t

Use their words in such a way

Creative people

Have it good

With our pictures

In our minds

Characters and scenery

Poetry and fiction both


Little crazy

I might be

But I’m never quite alone

There’s always something

In my head

Wraps me up

And frees my mind

Even when my day was hard

Poetry’s my safety valve
