THE RIGHT POEM
When the right poem is born, it is all feeling,
taste and touch and nourishment,
All heart and aching and lifting.
Poetry is a revolution with a profound sense of strength.
When the right poem arrives, I notice it instantly.
It is all-moving like earthquakes so powerful
that it breaks down mental barriers
and knocks ignorance off Richter Scales.
The right poem is not merely the ability
to paint pictures with words.
The right poem is a full manifestation of the heart,
a complete contextualizing of the soul.
The right poem is my entire body into words,
Every piece of flesh, every tingling nerve,
A spiritual essence poured out on the page
