(everything I See Is Poetry To Me) - Poem by Allen Steble

Everything I see
Is poetry to me
From the last standing tree
In a lonely forest
From the great ocean sea
Bathing in the sunset
everything I see
Is poetry to me

Every thing I see
From the buzzing honey bee
in a red field of roses
From the whimsical jumping flea
That makes a dog scratch vigorously
Then chase his tail playfully
Is poetry to me

From the sun shinning brightly
To the birds flying freely
And singing in harmony
Everything around me
And everything I see
Is poetry to me.

    Again I like the simplicity of this - it doesn't need to 'try too hard'.

    Please feel free to read and comment on my poems.

    The manner you've described every thing around you is truly poetical, that's why every thing you see is Poetry to you, ! ! !

    Everything you say seems poetical to me
    from first- to last green-team-saved tree
    the great ocean sea- marvellous idea,
    honey bee and jumping flea, yep -
    everything I read in your poetry
    seems so poetical, an ocean sea
    of sounds in great analogy -
    alliteration, assonance and
    allegory…
