Rhyme - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

Rhyme and meter
totter, teeter,
those who do
(maybe you?) .
Must make certain
that the curtain
of exposure
triggers closure,
it takes guts,
patient butts,
agile fingers,
mood that lingers
to create
the great state
of a trance.
Like a dance
spirits lifting
love thoughts drifting
so sublime
exquisite rhyme.
