-A Poet knows-

dean langmuir

A Poet knows

The dragonfly

The butterfly

The nymph


They do not know

if the wings 

of their write

will flutter

when they're touched

    Wow. I love the shortness of this piece and it's message. I feel this one is a metapoetic piece and it rings true to every poet. We aren't ever 100% sure if our writes will "take off" like we intended.

    Thanks for reading Rocky,it always feels good if there's a flutter,you take care.
