Find more poetry at the Poetry Friday Roundup hosted my Renee LaTulippe at No Water River.

artist, genius, poet

Created in response to this quote at Acadiana Wordlab on February 1st:

My hand holds the pen,
glides over this fresh new page
like an ice skater on a newly frozen pond.
Why not fly? If your words have wings,

then climb on. Why not dream?
If your dreams incite
your imagination. In this room,
we are given wings,

genius wings of fire and ice.
Words will burn your eyes, make you cry;
Words will fill your diaphragm
make you laugh–guffaw even.

I could wear a red dress and black heels,
but that is not me. I am not a wild cardinal.
I am a steady robin, blending in with the earth
helping you notice the coming of spring.

Let’s come together,
build a genius-poetic-artist sculpture,
a structure that moves together,
opens up a symphony of sound.
