Read a Poem Aloud
Many folks read poetry silently
mindful that they may not
and the fluidity of a poem.
Why do some poems deserve to be
memorized and even metamorphized
into sweet song lyrics.
I secretly hope mine are someday.
Poems are best when read aloud
I learned that late in life.
They resonate and
infuse your blood stream
with love and passion
as a prayer does.
You become mindful of every breath,
every stress, every meter,
as the words beat in your heart.
I want to hear
I rather repeat just one line
that get lost in the endlessness of time.
Read poetry aloud I say.
