Poetry

poetry is the art of releasing in a breath
what could not be dislodged by the gale

in this way some may realize moments
in which they’ve striven all their lives

and thereby find kindred hearth
round to warm amid bitter storm

the poet is not the more wise
the poet is merely the path blazed
that others have prior trod
