# # His Life As A Poem (Inspired By The Poems Of Shalom Freedman) - Poem by Sonya Florentino

He was born
He lived
He suffered to write
He died
His poems ask why

P.S.
The poet is not dead
The poet is alive
The poet posts poems
on this poemhunter site

Note: the poem is not about Mr. Shalom Freedman (it was simply inspired by some of his poems) . It could be about any poet, it could be about you, or it could very well be about me.....

    A very evocative title. It is not surprising that Shalom
    Freedom's work has inspired these spare, elegant
    lines. I believe his poems will have life
    beyond the calendar.A poet could ask
    for no more than this. Beautiful
    work, Sonya.

    Love,
