    i wanna write a poem that speaks a romance to the little blue lines…

    that whispers into the ears of the sheet…

    a poem retold by the pages to the breeze

    words that end up on stop signs

    on bottles of wine

    words retold by the river to the seas..

    phonetically carried by the movement of the trees…

    and by feathered wings

    by the buzz of bees… even carried by ants to hilltop openings.. .

    to backroom basement poker scenes

    jotted on the sides of toilet seats

    and in permanent ink

    and they’ll not even know how they know this piece…

    from where or when those words speak

    just hearing them in their heads

    in their souls

    in their sleep

    pleading in the background while they read

    even when they’re turning channels on the TV

    watching the big screen at the movies..

    a poem you can hear through the water in the shower scene…

    in broken english, spanish, and japanese

    and even in brail for when you can’t see…

    words that calm the babies…

    tame the savage beast

    that you can read over the dirt to make grass grow green… even kill all the weeds

    to sprout new trees

    even landscaped rivers and streams..

    it shakes hands with the rays of the sun

    with the very beams..

    slingshots through the universe

    the galaxy

    all the polka dots lights we see..

    a poem that carries the message to alien life forms

    they’ll “phone home” like ET

    pointy lightbulb fingers.. carry the message put forth by the earthling peep

    words

    that

    say

    read me aloud… into the breeze.

    You wrote these words in earnest, thus striking the reader in such a way, that the words can't help but leave an impression. I thoroughly enjoyed this write.

    THEN write us a poem...

    ...that shake us to our very core
    have us begging for more of your
    alphabet-mixing tease
    as you please our mental fix
    i mean....QUICK
    come on
    write us a poem
    that brings sunshine to a rainy day
    tell us the words you'd say
    to ignite our dreams
    to float this theme of

    i wanna write a poem

    come on
    write us a poem
