Poem's a Poem


A poem's not
A black cat hiding
Under the bed
In a dark room.

Poem's the cat
That jumps to life
At mice of ideas
Roaming around.

Poem's organized
Presentation of
A whole bunch of
Disorganized thoughts.

Or it could be
A disorganized set
Of wild thoughts
Of an ordered mind.

Poem looks at
Extraordinary aspects
Of simple and ordinary
Events in life.

Or it could be
An ordinary view
Of something
Very special.

Every subject's
Topic for a poem
Every person
A poet unique.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
