A Poem About Poetry

The Poetry of Me

Staring, again,
at yet another bank page
in my notebook.
An upbeat punk tune
guitars, bass, drums, piano
pulse through my headphones
and into my brain.

I believe that there is
poetry in everything.
In the kids running
through the fountains in the park,
parents close by watching
yet letting their little ones be kids.
In the black sleek tower
looming above the park from a distance,
the chief building in the city’s skyline.
In the concrete block emerging
out from the grass, currently
holding me while I write.

I write about
what I see, feel, hear, love, experience.
And today my poetry
comes from the park.
