Poetry, Yay or Nay?


I take great liking to writing poetry,
It keeps me true and very well connected,
With my emotions to display openly,
And sometimes comes on when I least expect it.

Some can be serious and some quite playful,
To write to both degrees keeps my mind open,
Non-single-minded nature keeps me stable,
Bringing light to dark, dark to light—I’m hoping.

Take this sonnet as a small, brief example,
Poetic inclination brought this answer,
A simple “yay” would serve, but on I ramble,
To inhabit my coy, poetic manner.

To answer your question: Poetry I “yay,”
It keeps me going, each and every day.
