Step Inside A Poem

Step inside a poem

And see the world through someone else’s eyes
Trip along the syllables
And taste the sweetness of the rhyme
The dripping of the consonants
Creates a music all its own
Thundering vowels and whirling images
Transcend our sleeping thoughts
The drums of the heart beat anew
And carry us far

To another place
And another time
And another way
Of being.
