Poetry

Hi! Welcome to the first post in my poetry blog.

Here is a recent poem I wrote about the subject.

POETRY

is a body part
in need of my daily attention,
a muscle to be
worked, a joint

to be flexed, skin
that requires renewing.
Maybe the point
is to put into motion

that part, that flesh
where a poem resides:
something that we find
just below the belly

and behind the eyes,
at the tips of the fingers and
the middle of the ears,
everywhere blood

and breath
make their home:
the top of the head,
the bottom of the heart,

the very centre
of the bone.
