Waves And Salt - Poem by Abdul Wahab

In a poem ideas are not enough
You need an image
Even composing an item, abstract
Like the shading you provide
Upon the people scorching
Or the breeze you produce
While the air is so hot
Or the goodwill you have in your heart;
Compose a thing
Create a situation or invent an event
Said a man who is not an idiot
Mere words are not enough
Nor the rhymes, forced
You need a metaphor to blend
Life and ocean
To create ripples
But wave would be best to kiss the shore
Or salt would the best to give your life a good taste
