The Secret

Poetry sounds like snowflakes landing on spring flowers. I write, read and hear poems with my heart.






The Secret

The secret is no secret. The factual is real.
Love isn't for apathy. It's for one with zeal.

The secret is no secret. The tangible is pure.
Force isn't any muscle. It's inside the sure.

The secret is no secret. The palpable is rule.
Wit isn't undercover. It's a forthright tool.

The secret is no secret. The visible is clear.
Joy isn't conditional. It's presence of cheer.

The secret is no secret. The evidence is in.
Win isn't at the finish. It's when you begin.

The secret is no secret. The manifest is nude.
Sex isn't mere occurrence. It's a daily food.

The secret is no secret. The obvious is true.
Life isn't in some other. It's all within you.
