A Poem’s Potential

A Poem’s Potential

You don’t write a poem.
You craft it.
Methodically filling it to the brim
Until it overflows
And spreads so thin
Across the world it grows

It becomes a twinkle
In the consciousness of a few
Planting and feeding a seed
Tender and new with dew.

This seed makes a new plant.
This in turn makes more.
If you think your little poem can’t
Have potential, it does have it in store.
