“A poet‘s work is to point at frauds”
and to to take “a late walk”
to observe the sunset.
A poet’s work is
“A thing of beauty”
but can be “A song of despair”
when “A dog has died.”
A poet’s work can be
“A hand mirror”
so you can see the truth
face to face.
A Poet’s work is “Acceptance”
that sometimes there is not much that a poet
can do about abolishing hate and breeding peace.
A poet’s work
is a “Brave and Startling truth”
and or a “Lesson in Vengeance”
or an “Enigma”
or a simple “letter to an aunt”
to ease her pain.
A Poet’s work
eloquently describes a “summer’s dream”
or a “conversation”
about “Faith being a fine invention”
But for me a Poet’s work is to
“Carpe Diem” and speak from the heart
every minute of the day.
