Ars Poetica

My poem can be whatever it wants to be
Free to sing
Free to laugh
Free to cry
Free to rhyme
Or not to rhyme 

My poem is free and can be whatever it wants to be
Out of darkness it shines
Like a bright star
On sunny days
It dances with shimmering waves
At sunset
It joins the birds in birdsong

On a rainy day
It marvels at raindrops
Sliding down the window
In sleepy rivulets
Or stopping
As precious pearls from heaven
On flower petals and green leaves

My poem can be whatever it wants to be
But it must be free
Free to sing a sad song
Or a happy tune
Or even a silly one
Such good fun
In form
Or no form, like this one
Yet sprinkled with poetic dust

My poem can be whatever it wants to be
But sing it must.
