Stand Up Poetry

not romantic whatsoever....


grab some stick matches -
lay them out in the shape
of the human body
with the sulphur ends outward.
now light each end.
what do you see?
the mind, hands and feet
are definitely on fire.
that is the tingling feeling
a poet gets every time
a creation is created.
the full effect,
is the energy it provides
for a new poet.

Then it is handled with care as a small child..Then turned out to the world..The poet hopes just as the parents of that child do.That what they have cared for, is not taken for granted and abused.For as a child, it holds all the hopes and dreams one can have.Lovely Don..
You have touched with this piece.. ~smiles~
