A poem is usually a short story
With a beginning, middle and an end.
In many cases it may not follow
That exact format as a poet extracts words.
However it is written it has meanings
That are not too obvious but are there.
Some readers may see a poem
From their vantage point and it can be different.
It's fun to see different opinions
On a poem I write each day,
None are wrong of course-
The beauty of self expression.
I learn so much from my readers.
Much more than they are aware of.
For a poet is always growing
And the reader adds to that growth.
