The best poetry,
is the kind that’s poured
out of our hearts like libations

The kind that upholds truth
like African Griots
tracing their lineage back to ancient Kings

The kind that fights for the freedom
of the common man
like an unselfish King
who’s passion is giving freely to his people

The best poetry,
is the kind that sings the song of life
over the drumbeat of love

The kind that’s born from the place
where the beat of the heart
intersects with the rhythm of the soul
and the words Tango with our emotions

The kind that’s expressed
with the humble confidence
of a child of God,
driven by purpose
unwavering
relentless
dedicated
and embodied with truth

The best poetry,
is the kind that simply is…
pure
compassionate
hopeful
dreamy
strong
courageous
brave,
and loving
like a mother and her newborn

The best poetry,
is LOVE… 

Beautiful sunrises
and breathtaking sunsets
LOVE…

Honeybees
and hummingbirds
LOVE…

Morning breath kisses
and nighttime prayers
LOVE…
just LOVE…

What kind of poetry do I like?
I like the kind that is
LOVE…
