POETRY

Poetry affirms life

Embraces life

Is life

 

Creation is poetry

Love is poetry

Beauty and truth are poetry

 

Life without poetry

Is like

Life without

       sunsets

           flowers

              birds

                 stars

 

Life without poetry

Is mere existence

Colorless

Without joy

               hope

                   peace

                       love
