Let’s Call This What It Isn’t 

Day 18 of National Poetry Month, from the prompt “let’s call this what it isn’t”. I found this styrofoam heart on a bench in the shoe department of a Kohl’s. It brought me a smile and I brought it home to add to my collection. Short, sweet and simple. It is what it is.

Everyone Becomes A Poet

DAY #14 National Poetry Month 

Inspired by Plato

I see poetry

in the wind and

hear our song

in the sky.

I taste it vibrating

on your tongue

and feel its home

in my heart.
