Poetry & Simplicity

What is it about poets
And the wind, the stars
Or the fervent kiss
The maddening touch
Of words
Upon forests aflame
Breath held, or caught
Endless pages
Of longing
Love
And loss
The intoxicating addiction
To dwell on feeling
And to bring meaning
To ordinary things
And form simplistic beauty
Truly there is nothing
More simple
Than ink and a pen
But a poet
Not so much
