Do Not Teach Poetry! - Poem by Atef Ayadi

Do not teach poetry;
Poetry is not a skill.

It is a painting
that does not need a standard
To be taught or be drawn.

Do not preach
To write or use a poem;
A poem
Is a baby’s face
one can not add, or change
stay by and let it just grow.

Do not look for
A rhythm:
Center your “self”
And create
Your warbling echo.
