The Poet, Not the Poem

The Poet, Not the Poem

I am not a butterfly
floating o’er a windswept field of wildflowers
nor a wild rosebush
blooming ‘neath the April sun
I am not lightning
flashing against the nighttime sky
beyond the pouring rain
nor ocean waves
crashing against the summer sand

I am not the inspiration that you seek
I am not hard or soft or strong or weak
I am not a rare and valuable antique
yet I will hunt these things you speak
