Poets who say it right
Words coming out like dynamite
Poets who write Day and Night
They don’t take their words light
Poets share their experiences from plight
Determined with desire
Their own encouragement to inspire
Poets tell what they are thinking
Word connections
Own expectations
Poets alone
Words letting it be known
Poets into their crafts
Talent within
Beginning until the end
Poets are like Librarians full of word organization
The idea being appreciation
Impressing the reader with sensations
What the Poet says must be taken within
This is how writing begins
Poets write to explore
Their words are the open and close door
What you heard the Poet added think
It is always written in ink
The theory
The mystery
All for the reader to see
Poets who you don’t even know
Words are presented being show
True Poets in plain sight
What are you writing tonight?

    Poet cans write from an actual experience, topic or a word, it's interesting to see what will become of it. I didn't start till I was 87 so all my poems are sort of ancient ! But I have managed to write 70 so far just over a year !!
    It seems I am the person to comment, why is that ?
    I guess I have too much time.
