A poem is a mother's love,
the stars above.
Real
as a broken heart which cannot heal.
A poem should reveal thy thought
as passions sought,
A poem should be genuine
as child's infectious grin,
showing thoughts inferred,
admitting yet concealing behind written word
to bring triumphant joy and wrenching sorrow,
hopes for the 'morrow.
A poem should reveal thy thought
as passions sought.
A poem should make you think,
a link,
connecting heart and mind,
to seek and then to find
escape.
A beacon's light on city's scape.
A poem should be tragic,
magic.
A poem should be real.
Feel.

written with my daughter Kimberly.
