Consider Me Akin: A Poem on Poetry


I read a poem today that
challenged me to go beyond
the boundaries and constraints
of my “little” world

I stepped into the words
and expressions of another

It was complex, deep,
and stretched
my intellectual capacities

At the same time
it was light on my soul
nourishment for my spirit
and simple in my heart

It made me cry…
a cry of joy
a cry of revelation
a cry of beauty unexplained

If this is the provocation
and fulfillment
one gets out of being
a lover and understander
of poetry

Consider me akin
