In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Be the Change.”
I want to herald the next wave
renaissance the writers and weave
the words I write
into their hearts and ears.
Allow writers to poem
to give weight to their worded feelings
to clear their throats and cull the craft
from their daily tweeted toast.
Bring the poetry back to the electronic age
and let us all solidify our footprints
with beauty and grace
with ugly and awkward
with one-hundred new words in our creative lockers
and the old emotions still washing ashore.
