A Poem for You-Day 29/30

I’m finally admitting that I do, indeed, have a bug. It’s not serious but…ugh! However, I’m determined to keep my commitment to posting every day for the month of November. So, I give you this poem that I saw on Facebook a year or so ago. I loved the reminder that art can be anything! I hope you enjoy it too. And I’ll see you again tomorrow 🥰

The Best Poem Ever by Brian Doyle

What if, says a small child to me this afternoon,

We made a poem without using any words at all?

Wouldn’t that be cool? You could use long twigs,

And feathers, or spider strands, and arrange them

So that people imagine what words could be there.

Wouldn’t that be cool? So there’s a different poem

For each reader. That would be the best poem ever.

The poem wouldn’t be on the page, right? It would

Be in the air, sort of. It would be between the twigs

And the person’s eyes, or behind the person’s eyes,

After the person saw whatever poem he or she saw.

Maybe there are a lot of poems that you can’t write

Down. Couldn’t that be? But they’re still there even

If no one can write them down, right? Poems in

Books are only a little bit of all the poems there are.

Those are only the poems someone found words for.

    1. Thank you for your kind wishes! And I hope your husband recovers quickly also! A friend of mine told me that her shingles and pain were greatly reduced by taking the supplement called
      L lysine… I don’t know anything about it, but she swore by it. Sending good wishes and hugs!
