The Poetry


Poetry has possessed me
like a wide river pool twirling
where fresh sentimental thoughts
cascading an innate surge of passion.

Poetry has inspired me
like sunrise that awakens
to brighten my being with joy
and urge my indulgence to inscribe.

Poetry brings pleasure to me
encourages this soul to express
innate human reactions to existence
that accumulate as I meditate in solitude.
