What is a poem?

Small snapshot of the soul
a moment of being
no monetary gain
yet profit
something that wasn’t there before
now illuminates
is alive

        1. I’ve thought for a long time that what I like most about my favorite poets and their writing is the way they simply notice their own life, and remind us that what we too often dismiss as boring and mundane is in fact something amazing and beautiful. Thanks for posting this one. 🙂
