I am hearing poetry when awake,
dreaming poetry when asleep,
breathing poetry with each breath,
I am living in a poem.
Life presents itself in prose,
giving words to articulate my world
with versed description of what I see.
Those around me impress my heart
in visages of life lived in joy and sorrow
inspiring words to communicate their passage.
A flower in bloom fills the air with scent
leaving me searching for words to
describe the perfume seducing my senses.
I have surrendered myself to thinking in stanzas,
a literary pilgrimage taking words from my thoughts to pen.
Days spent living life in a poem.
