SunWinks! 27 July 2014: Ars Poetica

Ars Poetica

My poem can be whatever it wants to be

Free to sing

Free to laugh

Free to cry

Free to rhyme

Or not to rhyme

 

My poem is free and can be whatever it wants to be

Out of darkness it shines

Like a bright star

On sunny days

It dances with shimmering waves

At sunset

It joins the birds in birdsong

On a rainy day

It marvels at raindrops

Sliding down the window

In sleepy rivulets

Or stopping

As precious pearls from heaven

On flower petals and green leaves

 

My poem can be whatever it wants to be

But it must be free

Free to sing a sad song

Or a happy tune

Or even a silly one

Such good fun

In form

Or no form, like this one

Yet sprinkled with poetic dust

 

My poem can be whatever it wants to be

But sing it must.
