If You Look For Meaning Of A Poem - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

if you look for the meaning of a poem
be disappointed
its meaning
is in the feeling

the feel of
a lightness like a cloud
(were you ever once a cloud?)
the feel of a feather
landing on your palms
and you do not
even
know it has
touched
you

be glad
a poem is
nothing
but
feelings

it has no
mind

you cannot
measure
its weight
and width
but it is so
huge
and
encompassing

it is there
it has arrived
occupying
the whole you
and you
never knew
that
for once it
ever happened.
