kellyrfineman has me in such a poetic mood lately! Jumping from the springboard of her great post yesterday (with a lovely Gertrude Stein quote to boot), I give you:


When lofty phrases fail to impress
the sharpest of minds, the
warmest of hearts, 
when only one word will work its magic,
will leak its power and shape its meaning to 
fit my thought and yea, even dare to think more…
that, my dear pen,
is a poem.

  1. That most certainly is a poem! It was a beautiful piece, too. I’m sticking it in my “memories”, so I can refer back to it from time to time.

    Oh, and I’m glad you’ve been enjoying my National Poetry Month posts. Sadly, the month will be ending soon. But I’m going to continue to do poetry-related posts on Fridays.
