Hobby or Passion...why differentiate? My dish for the potluck

you are reading my hobby
in Calibri body 11
you are in between
the lines of my passion
the keys my brushes
the screen my easel
I know no other form
from morph to myth
with eloquent
with wry bread toasted
a tea stained stint
or coffee cream
like pages white
I sip and wake
while I write
I don’t morn
I don’t wink
I write poetry
I think

  2. I love it! It's taken me some time to see what I write as "art", but you describe it aptly here. And, yes, the passion is something. Hard to describe to those who don't feel it. Thankful for this fellowship with those who do!

  8. I like it! Preaching to the choir is still a good thing!

  9. Normally-boring (read: common everyday) images get a poetic uplift/additional, improved meaning - one of the big goals of many poets, I'm guessing. . . solid work.
