    Poetry is
    the first thought that crosses your mind in the morning
    Poetry is
    rubbing your eyes and at the same time yawning
    Poetry is
    the clothes you put out the night before for the next day
    Poetry is
    to solve a problem using the mind which is the best way
    Poetry is
    exactly what you think poetry should be
    Poetry is
    our genetic make-up translated on paper showing others how poetry could be
    Poetry is
    the whino on the corner leanin' with his hand out
    Poetry is
    the crack addict in front of the check cashing spot fienin' for a hand out
    Poetry is
    the baby in the womb who can't wait to see the light of day
    Poetry is
    our ancestors tired from workin', yet still found the might at night to pray
    Poetry is
    the communication of telepathic vibrations
    Poetry is
    the voice of the people cryin' out to an unsympathetic nation
    Poetry is
    everyone on this site spreadin' love around
    Poetry is
    those gone on before us and everyone above the ground
    it is the ability to say I am that I am
    and not worry who thinks different of you
    it is the ability to look past the hate
    because you know you know you love you
    It is something that can't be summed up in one poem
    with one mic or one poet
    poetry is what you say it is
    if even only u know it
    it is to stare into one's eyes
    in a way that they'll never forget it
    that look from across the room
    and you hope that she gets the message
    it is the ability to just listen
    and feel the power that silence has
    it is the ability to look at the washington monument and know
    they are trying to reveal the power Osiris has
    it is in the act of making love
    which takes place in the mind first
    it is all of our great orators present past and future
    who when they speak it makes your mind burst
    it is anything you have ever thought of
    and things that have never crossed your mind
    you don't have to be a poet to perform poetry
    all u need to do is be able to transcend space and time
    Poetry is........................

    The way that we look at life, from sun up to sundown, and during our dreams as well, that's poetry. I really like the way you approached this vibe. Flow on.

    Im really feelin the message of this poem. Poetry is more a way of life, and not a concept. More of a gift, and less of a challenge. Very beautiful poem


    Keep the flow goin...
