Accidental Poet

Rare We Must Be


Rare we must be

To write words in this way

As all poets will gladly admit

To give of ourselves everyday


We dig deep

To our own heart’s core

Listening to our inner muse

Then finding so much more


Descriptive words

Coaxed to mingle with others

To work together

Like loving sisters and brothers


All within a poet’s heart

Passion feeding upon itself

A breeding ground gives birth

Of your poetic wealth


Of twinkling stars

You might speak fondly

Giving clue to wishes

On love so warmly


How feverishly a poet writes

Pulling words from a deep abyss

Landing upon the page

With a soft loving kiss
