A Poet

A poet connects various notions

with ink to paper

brings to life circumstances yet to be told

while grasping words from inner self.

A poet is often a comic relief

also shares beauty with a photo

for those who rush through life.

A poet is often intense with thoughts

scribbled perhaps on a walk

where nature clears the mind

opens the heart.

A poet is cocky and humble

takes great pride writing

but is worst critique when finished

should not read own wording.

A poet exists because life lived

expands many horizons to share

not for attention or to brag

for a heart and true mind does not need

such applause or praise.
