Poem #2

I don’t know what poetry is
Is it rhythm and rhyme?
Is it words arranged on a page in space?
Words spoken, moving in time?
I really think that I don’t know what poetry is.

So this poetry challenge is already taking a turn for the worse. I’ve discovered that I’m not really sure what a poem is? Is there even any such thing as a poem? Well, I’m pretty sure there is.

I might need to take a break from this self-imposed challenge and read some poetry. I also need to be in a tv-less environment. I want some time to myself.

*I need a deep sleep where I can dream of silence.

*Now that sounded poetic

  1. That question has kept me from calling what I write (or used to)…poetry.

      Maybe it’s ornamental prose.
