Is it poetry
When a salmon comes upstream
When an ocean beats the sand
When a bird sings
When a goal is reached?

Is it poetry
When a friend is made
When a word is repeated?
When a bell is chimed.
When a word is repeated.

Is it poetry
When peace is found
When pen is on paper?
When thought is written!
When action is expressed

Is it poetry
When sugar is on a tongue?
When someone laughs
When a picture is taken?
When a stream trickles down a mossy boulder!

It is poetry.
Poetry is beauty.
Poetry is wonder.
Poetry is happiness.
Poetry is life.
