Gasping at Sunbeams


Poetry about poetry, or Ars Poetica.

Gasping at Sunbeams

Writers in attics,
finders of words,
capturing moments
that flutter with birds
away in the skies,
intense butterflies
gasping at sunbeams,
telling no lies,
wanting the essence,
of how things might be:
form, rhythm, lyrics,
formal or free;
the significance,
the elements,
of poetry.
