I have written poetry since I was a child. I found this quote on Pinterest that explains what poetry is to me. I don’t know the author of this quote, but I love it.
” Poetry is what happens when your mind stops working,
and for a moment, all you do is feel. “
Feelings rush in –
The moment slows and freezes.
Time stands still –
Nothing else matters.
Our lives are filled with all of these moments.
Our bodies just skin that carries our souls.
Take time –
for the stuff that really matters.
The good and the bad.
Life is a gift.
Each moment, it matters.
The time we are given is not just for ourselves.
