Self Stretch, Wonderful Writing

World Poetry Day

World Poetry Day

21 March is World Poetry Day, in which UNESCO (which has a wonderful motto of building peace in the minds of men and women) “recognizes the unique ability of poetry to capture the creative spirit of the human mind.”

Here is my humble contribution to the volume of poetry in the world – may it keep growing strong!

We poets stand

On the edge of

Reason, inviting you to read the

Lines borne of our souls, scrawled

Down on the

Pages of our lives.

Our voices breathe our pleasure and pain into the

Ether,

To be interpreted by individual

Readers in their own way (for everyone brings an element of themselves to public writing).

You are invited to garner from our words what speaks to you:

Do you take up the call of the poet within all of us?

Are you prepared to respond to the muse within your heart, to let

Your spirit breathe in the art that is poetry?

Happy World Poetry Day – may your muse find you.
