A different breed of person.


                   A poet is a person like you and me,

                 It's just that they see things differently,

                        Our world is one of strife.

                 Their world is different than our life.

                      We see a flower on a stem,

            They see a garden of rainbows around them.

                      We see a car on the road.

          They see a majestic vehicle flowing to an abode.

                    We see a woman and a child.

                  They see a Queen and her Prince.

              We see a lawn mower cutting the lawn.

        They see a wonder machine that cuts until dawn.

                 A poet is a different kind of person.

             They see things differently than we do.

            Their minds think of wondrous things,

                        Ours just gets us thru.

                   So a poet I would like to be.

             So that I could see the world they see.

so true and so often the poet is considered by many to be even a bit weird until they read what you write and then you hear" I wish I could write like that!"

You are already a wonderful poet. You penned, in an excellent manner, the way think as a poet, and the differences between you and the layman.

Thanks Linda.

A poet immortalized! Poetry of Desire and Distinction. It has visions. The visions, third eye, inner-soul glow and wisdom rightly expressed in poetic gesture. Daniel Ray

Our world is one of strife.
Their world is different than our life.

This is very well said and I feel that writers, poets and artists can unite the world in the era of internet and prevent war and events like '9/11.
I have not seen a poetic expression of a creative person's vision. Its a great idea.

You have defined "Poet" very well. A poet does see things differently. A poet will bring out the best of everything when he/she writes.
