Writing a Poem

The Heart

Writing a poem isn’t so hard,
at least if you know about rhymes.
It’s all in the drama, pause, and pacing of words
so they ebb and flow at the exact right time.

Writing a poem isn’t so hard,
at least if you’re into that kind of thing.
It’s certainly much more difficult, I admit,
if you hate beauty, rhythm and words that sing.

Writing a poem isn’t so hard,
at least if your fingernails are dry.
Just try explaining drips of “Fuschia Power”
all over your keyboard to the company IT Guy.

Writing a poem isn’t so hard,
at least if you write as if no one will read it.
The best poems, after all,
are when the author is as delighted as a reader.
