I Breathe Poetry


Whenever I get on the road and travel
I don't plan to write any poetry
I'll take a break, I tell myself
My vacation will be spent differently.

But everything brings on a poem
During daytime or in my dreams
I live and I breathe poetry
I just can't escape it, it seems.

So I guess I must accept who I am
And the person I have to be
For it doesn't matter my schedule
I simply breathe poetry.

    Absolutely love this one! ! ! A scent, image, nature, people, music, anything in life brings poetry alive in me also. It is my essence and passion throughout a lifetime as it seems to be for you. Great minds join poetically somewhere along the lines in life. So happy that we've met in verse! Thank you for sharing. (Report) Reply

    We must all breathe, and if there were more poetry then maybe there would be no more bad breath! Good job kiddo. (Report) Reply
