Why, Poetry?

Like a vintage love letter,
so fragile to open,
admire its beauty for what it is.

As you read,
use your voice first.
How and why does it
relate to you?
Then instinct takes over,
What was the Poet trying to say?

Poetry written
is a soul encased in a locked box
of words and those who understand
can see through
that person’s eyes.

    A truly good poem, I believe, can be felt by all that read it. Nicely done, John.

    That’s true! A poem can say so much in just few words. Great post, John. 🙂
