What is poetry…


What is poetry?

I was asked. What is poetry?

I told her, poetry is everything.

Poetry is the description of the first kiss, the first dance.

Poetry suppose make us laugh out loud, cry silent tears.

Great poetry steal  us from lonely world,

made us believe and see miracles and wonder.

Make us want to dance in Florence,

drink German beer in Munich in October.

Make us want to feel the coldness of the sea and walk in the clouds.

Make us understand war, make us understand sickness.

Make us wishful for love and remember beautiful faces.

Yes I said, poetry is everything.
