Lovely Dedication to poets


April is a national poetry month

We must celebrate our own fave poems our own poets

Cos poetry fills us with such beautiful glee

How it touches our souls


Every rhyme every haiku every stanza

Every free verse every tanka every sonnet

Every type of a poem


Have moved us into rhythm of a poet’s voice

This remains in thy heart of humanity

Indeed we are poets inside


But expressed differently……


Some of us write, recite

Some of us read, sing

Some of us shout, even joke

Some of us don’t have an explanation of how we feel but try to explain


Poetry has a special growth

& it never dies

Cos we speak it & let our bodies flow


Oh I guess this is why poetry has

Landed in my brown hands so

I could write my own words down

From my heart


While you eye on every poetic thought I wrote

Like a shadow you follow each of my own calligraphic prints

You’re my reader, I’m your poet


As together, poetry is our united blood
