a good poet,
sees the world,
really sees the world.
They not only see a sunrise,
they see the colors that dance across the horizon.
The changing shapes of clouds
being blown about the blue sky.
When they write about love,
they touch upon deeply held feelings
giving voice to our deepest desires.
Passionate kisses are felt,
the warmth of another person held close,
losing oneself in the moment
wishing it to last forever.
In the way they use words
that worm their way into a person’s heart.
Poetry becomes the portal,
through which we step into
an unseen world,
uncovering mysteries lying
just outside of our limited sight.
