Talking, laughing, crying, shouting, winning, smiling, giggling, screaming
and more are expressions we put as humans, as people, as a civilzation,
we communicate and express,
she said he said,
Speakers, announcers, poets and readers
They are the ones who think and respond
they are the ones who give a shout and stand up amoung the millions we are
they are the salmon swimming aganist the stream letting the world know who they are
and we value that
we listen that
we publish that
we share that
we give our own ideas about that
we critize that
we accept that
we reject that
we store that
we learn from that
we create or destroy that
Poets are musicans, teachers, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers
inspirers, builders, chefs, listeners, authors, idealist, inventors
They are the kind who can be anyone but still be called a poet.
like musicans they play with words in a sweet song
like a teacher who hides a lesson or experince in their words
they share their views and feelings willing to connect with another out there.
Another person another mind another soul another life
Someone out there is a poet too.
Poets oh how we decribe them as repeating rhyming writers who make no sense in their words or sayings.
Yes they can make no sense to those who do not understand
It is a foriegn language, a code only visable to those who learn it and speak it soon themselves
Its a secret hidden but ready to be learned by anyone who will take the time and care to do so.
Once the secret is out it flies
I look up to all this and what I think poets and poetry is really.
Everyone has their own view and looks
like there is only one you.
and this is why poets and poetry are really something
and special to those who care
Plus anyone can be a poet too
all to do is to learn the secret and share it
soon you'll be a poet too.
