It's Poetry Thursday Again!

I'm choosing to ignore this week's writing prompt. Here is a poem I wrote many years ago, but just now found:

God! I Hate Gertrude Stein

The land
is a poem
is the land.

Your face
is a poem
is your face.

My soul
is a poem
is my soul.

Is a poem
is my soul
is the land
is your face

Is a poem?

i wanted badly to come up with
a better descriptive word
to describe how i felt
as i read
and reread
this poem.

and yet,
each time,
i got "cool"

and when i say "cool"
i want you to understand
that i mean that in the best
way possible,
i mean that i love it,
and that it caught me,
and that it held me,
and that it actually
insisted that i go back
and reread it...

and it was cool.
:)

I can't think of anything more rewarding that having someone saying something like this about my writing. Wow! Thank you.

I really like this poem - have you read any Wendy Cope? She occasionally plays like this and it's very successful.

I wasn't familiar with Wendy Cope but have spent some time this afternoon reading about her & some of her works on the internet. Thanks for recommending her.
