Poem by Roula Pollard
POETRY FAMILIARITY AND LOVE
Yesterday I saw the world
with more clarity and despite its remoteness
the world came closer and clearer
sat next to me, looked at me
Thus I became aware
and reflected only on positive thoughts
such as to keep all negativity away
so miracles can happen in front of me.
Then, I opened up Poetry
its mountains, lakes, seas
rivers, oceans, continents all clear
and stayed inside, always with it.
Even in the moonlight of the world
there are not frozen rivers.
Between the valleys of darkness
and the mountains of light
all locked doors Poetry opens.
