A Poem Is

A poem is a volatile moment

In a centrifuge

spun like

liquid air fractionally

distilled to smoke and

mirrors

<>

A poem has the character

of sky

each word a small sphere

of rain

catching the light

above the horizon

magnetic effluvia,

dancing lines

of subtle matter

<>

Poems, are tributaries

merging and convergent

to the heart

<>

Thank you to the beautiful Susan for inspiring this poem with hers: http://susandanielspoetry.com/2013/04/28/its-not-a-poem-unless-it-rhymes/
