Poetry - Poem by Van Dee Garner

Poetry,
The shorthand to a goal,
Portraying life's innumerable
Roles;
Its brief, tangible lines
Capture novels of the mind
Where intrigue and mystifying
Reason dwell...
Poetry,
The mind's greatest reward,
Lifting spirits where
Boredom is stored;
Each phrase carefully penned,
Equalizing foe and friend
As the poet's vision is
Tested by the tale...
Poetry,
And up thrusting oceanic swell,
Embodying one's creativity
In fresh horizons.
