30 Days of Thankfulness, Challenges

Day #19 – I’m thankful for poetry

Iambs and pentameters. Melody, rhythm and rhyme. Poetry are words which dance on a page. Or, in the heart. And sometimes, they flow from the mouth and pierce others’ minds with notions…and thoughts…and lessons…ideas…and on…and on…and on.

Poetry is what I do when I am not physically dancing, singing, drawing, or playing a musical instrument. In other words, if I’m not dancing, then I’m probably, singing. If I’m not singing, then I’m probably, reading, writing, reciting, or thinking about… a poem.

You may wonder why I like poetry so much. For now, the answer to that question is simple: I don’t know why. But I can tell you that poetry is to me what music is to dance, what peanut butter is to jelly, and what ham is to burger. I love poetry, and I thank God for giving mankind the ability to create poetry.
