A Poem is...


A gush of emotions in wordy form
Like rain from sky of mind,
And words juxtaposed in apt places,
Welling like a fountain from the heart.
They paint a picture perfectly
And give it music and life;
The picture is poem sans words;
The poem, a wordy picture.
Words give the hues and texture
Words draw the outlines broad
Editing makes the finer strokes
That creates a picture right.
