|"Defining it": a poem for poetry!|
Poetry is what crashes my dawn.
Poetry is the first breath of air I feel
rushing my lungs, telling me I'm still
alive. Poetry is mystery. Poetry s the unreachable.
Poetry is bone-shattering and tongue-splitting.
Poetry is holding my breath 'til I think I'll die
without one more gasp for air.
Poetry is God breath.
Poetry is rising beyond
what I am to what I could be.
