Poetry perspective

Poems have words, phrases, lines

Sometimes they tend to rhyme

Structure works, but not required

The meaning is what matters

Characters, places, feelings

An ode to my lost friend

A dog that I saw to the end

Memorialized in a poem

Referencing to a beloved captain

All that becomes buried recreated

Ingenious themes of poetry scatter

No words needed just emotion

Written to promote a notion

More than textbook standard

A means to share humanity

The greats knew what to do

Breaking the status quo

Frost to Edgar Allan Poe

A beautiful string of life

Replacing bitter strife

Do not take my word for it

Embody the riches of a poet

This poem is about: 
My family
Our world
