Encouraging words to aspiring poets

Just Like a Poem

There’s no doubt about it

Anyone can write poetry

It’s a people’s craft

As old as time


Here’s what you do:

Paint a picture with words

And listen to the sounds


Give your heart to each poem


Make people laugh

Make people cry

Make people want

To write poems themselves


Paint a picture with words

Then take away the words

And leave the picture


It’s so easy to write a poem


A blue sky with some clouds

Floating above,

A broomstick cuts across the sky

A straight line of smoke

In its wake

The line turns to angles and curves


And fades to clouds and blue sky again

Leaves a pretty picture,

Just like a poem
