What's A Poem
what's a poem? a dream no less
by Richard Stoker
not a verse? yet it's more...
a soufflé turned out well?
a thrown honed pot? glazed and
fired to perfection not a 'second'?
a new experience? a shattering blow?
a chilling cold that runs you
through and through? yet it's more...
a coming together in the readers' mind?
some say it's a gift the first line
perhaps? yet it's more...
a poem is a pearl? ... but it's more ... it's more
