Musical Poetry

When you read a poem
let the words flow around you
like music


lazily floating through the air

you listen to it


and it’s over soon

and you feel like you didn’t remember it
but later

you hear the melody in your head,

A memory.


you didn’t forget


you never forget
listen to the music in poetry

feel its beat,
Its rhythm.


the lyrical words wrapping around,
a poem is its own story,


where the words are different

where the beat is different



in a way where it sounds like music

poetry is music
listen to the words


concentrate on it

the mystery of it
how it sounds and how it feels





poems are different than the storybook

poems have different feeling and passion in it

in poems you can have a harmony and melody
fitting together just fine

yet even so, some poems don’t have this

lacking the beauty and skill
fitting together only by rhyme

lacking the passion that makes a poem a poem

other poems, on the other hand,


are written as sentences and paragraphs
and a poem is not prose


not that at all

it makes them unique
that is what makes it a poem

this is what makes the writers spell-weavers



the magic of how the words fit in,
piece by piece


and all sounding wonderful

like music,


like watching clouds go by,



a simple moment of nature,

frozen in time
and appreciated forever

anything can be a poem,


anything simple and calm

it does not have to rhyme
or be this way


the only requirement for a poem
is that it comes from


The imagination


and that it boldly steps through

Anything


to prove itself in the world.
