Poetry for Whom?


Does a poet write

for one or many?


a teacher told me

long ago,

but some days

I only have words

for you.

  1. The painting goes great with your words (as always).
    I always felt poetry was for the poet for some reason. I guess because the only time I’ve tried it it came from the heart and was very personal. (Do all poets do that? What do I know?) But then I’m not really a poet. Just a dabbler in this and that. You know “Jack of … Master of …) 😊
