Poetry; what is this thing called poetry?
Is it mere words consisting of syllables, symbolism, and meter, or is it more?

Poetry; What is this thing called poetry?

Is it something your high school English teacher spoon feeds you as you kick and scream?

Poetry: What IS this thing called poetry?

It is the sound of rain.
It is a first kiss.
It is the boom-thump of your favorite song.

It is birth, it is death, and it is everything in between.

Poetry is. 

(c) Susan Elliott


Sometimes I ponder life
Thinking that things
Are dark and bleak, but
Really life is
Bright and cheery
Underneath the
Coffee bean plant that
Keeps my
Starbucks in great supply.
(c) Susan
