The Strength of a Poet


The strength of a poet is never found in the revelation

of their words or in the hidden meanings,

or the perfect alignment

of their phrases.

Instead, their strength depends on which river,

which light

what source of the eternal,

they allow

to wash over them,

to refresh, to surge

through, their hearts

and their minds.
