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 passion 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.

In my distant past, I read a poem on what a poem is... this is my daughter Kimberly's and my collaberative effort on what a poem is to us... (she wrote all the good lines)

Something that should be copied and referred to often. In time I hope to share my love of the written word with my own daughters. Thanks for sharing yours.

If the topic ever comes up again in another forum asking 'what is poetry'..I'll refer back to this poem. Lovely job Kimberly and Tim! Now how about a 'poetic profile' of dad by Kimberly?
