'Untitled - what a poem is about' by David Talbot

A poem is about the very heart of a poem.

Like the power of friendship, love and sacrifice.

The danger is about going through the darkness:

The past, today’s challenges and the courage for tomorrow.

The passion is similar to someone

who cares and loves you on the way.

I think poetry is something you sense in your soul forever...

and that’s what makes a good poet.

How to make a poem is to feel the theme,

Like listening to classical music.

You need to write how you feel,

But also make it make sense to other people.


A poem is something that you feel

and experience the rhythm as you go on your quest.


When you meet other people on the quest,

It feels like a symphony,

but I still have to make my music,

they cannot make it for me.
