Poetry Month: The Rabbit Hole of Poetry 14 of 30

It's here!  It's National Poetry Month!  I'll hoping to write a poem every day this month.  I've decided to keep it simple this year.  I'm going to write about whatever strikes me each day.  I suppose it will be like a rollercoaster ride of poetry.  You'll never be quite sure what you're in for from day to day.

Today's inspiration:  surfing poets and poetry on the web 



The Rabbit Hole of Poetry 

This morning as the rain  
pitter-pattered on the window  
I fell into the rabbit hole of poetry.
Words danced across pages,  
tap-tapping in my ear. 

It wasn't long until  
I found myself learning of poets:  
those I've loved always, 
those new to me,  
those shaping the poetry world for all. 

As the rain danced on the patio
in a gentle waltz, 
each line of poetry glided 
in perfectly arranged stanzas 
causing me to pause in admiration. 

Puddles formed as each drop fell 
creating circular rhythmic ripples. 
I read on as poets carefully 
placed each word on the page, 
their cadence one of comfort. 

The sky quieted to gray 
as to draw our eye to the rain.
Each poem's placement on the page 
framing the weight of words 
the poet thoughtfully penned.  

The rain continued for hours 
and I was lost without a care, 
taking in every adventure, 
wrestling with every sadness, 
in a world created by poets.
