Poems are words

Posted by Gerry on June 1st, 2012

Poems are words
Floating in the air
Blown on the wind
Spinning about
With their own meaning
Lonely until joined together
By a thought

A statement flows
But it is no poem
Directions are given
But those words are not a poem, usually
Random thoughts expressed
As words
Come closer to being a poem

Then a phrase,
A joining, or a theme emerges

Some words are grasped
And drawn down
To paper or voice
So they can be repeated

Once captured from the wind
Together they can form
A poem
Good or bad
A poem nonetheless
And the joiner of words
Gathered from the random wind
Becomes a poet
