What Is A  Poem ?


A Poem

Is a whisper

In the soul’s cathedral


A poem

Is a wish

Beneath childhood’s stars


A Poem

Is a howl

In the literatural darkness


A poem

Is a premonition

A Deja-vu of the heart


A poem

Is a memory

Of things that may never be


A poem

Is a confession

Of the sins in our dreams
