The Poetry Of Poets Poem by Kenneth Maswabi

The Poetry Of Poets

Dear Poets
I have gone through your profiles
You look like ordinary human beings
You seem to be everything a normal human being is
You are fragile and strong
You have all the challenges of life
You have not won any Nobel Peace Prize
You are just the kind of people I meet everyday
Now how come you are so radiant?
Your light fill my sky
Your warmth is my cup of comfort
You have dressed me with life
And put my passions on fire
I am ignited by your intense light
I am illuminated by your passions
Your every word is my wilderness
I am a tourist in your garden of words
Every step I take I am quenched of my thirstiness
Every word I consume is a capsule of medicine
I am impressed by your great creativity
How did you acquire such great talents?
Is there a special class for the kind of people you are
I want to be near you
To breathe the air you breathe
I want to follow each and every thought
That pops out of your minds
I want to know
The kind of knowledge you have
I want to live
The life of a poet
And maybe I will see
The canopy of my life
I will see the petals of existence
I will drink from the spring of life
I will find the peace to roam through the realm of imagination
I will write beautiful love poems
And maybe I will win the heart of my lover
I just want to know
How you came to be
Tell me your secrets
