A Poem About Poetry

Poetry defines my life’s flow, mostly down stream.

It is the way a surfer connects with mother ocean in fluid motion.

It is what I feel when I am cruising on a skateboard, music blasting in my ear, stylie.

It is a rhythmic power dictated, not in song, but in the voice of it’s possessor.

It is the the sexual energy between two lovers who need not use words because their eyes say it all.

Poetry is the expression of true emotion.

To me it is the taking of motion and making it concrete on flimsy paper with liquid ink.

Poetry is everything that we do added with the desire and longing for that which we have yet to do.

It is grasping tightly and letting go of everything all at once.

Poetry is words painting the infinite.
