you are the poetry

poetry is the day you say yes to life
it is the moment you feel
torn open by love
and shattered by grief
it is being left speechless
in the face of beauty
or tragedy
it is the bewilderment
that strikes
when life is turned
upside down

poetry is what you are

it is a living thing
an expression of essence

you are the poetry
you seek
when you open
a book
