Good poetry describes, great poetry reveals.
The writer and reader find themselves present together in discovery.
Discovering in our loneliness and brokenness, we are
And we are not alone.
The world reminds us we are only human,
While a gentle smile and reassuring glance remind us, it is ok.
Hoping not to be lost in the vastness of life,
Wanting both to find and be found.
Looking for significance in that which makes us both human and unique,
Finding commonality in our condition, and comfort in our presence.
Drawn to each other by our sense of smallness.
Finding ourselves present together in discovery.
