What A Poem Is

A poem is a present
You give to yourself.
Find one in a dusty book
Nested on your shelf.,
Find one in a face you’ve never met,
Feel one on a windy day.

Hear a poem blow,
See a poem in a mouse,
Watch a poem run,
Smell a breakfast poem when
Morning offers sun.

You may think a poem is always made up of words
But poems can be chocolates,
Poems can be birds,
Poems can be secrets,
Or shout upon the air.

A poem is hiding somewhere in each
Of us – We just need to find it.

Dee Nthedi (Poetess Dee)
