Seven Incredible Things a Poem Can Do!

(The Third One Blew Me Away!)

A poem can tickle your senses.
A poem can capture a scene.
A poem can fill you with sorrow and joy
And every emotion between.
A poem can hammer out justice.
A poem can plant a truth’s seed.
A poem can conjure up healing and hope.
A poem can be what you need.

Is there still a place for a poem in a world full of widely shared, attention grabbing content? Of course there is, particularly with the right title! Seriously, though, poetry was widely shared and attention grabbing for thousands of years before “meme” was even coined, and it’s still going strong.

National Poetry Month is coming to a close today, but poetry goes on and on and does soooo many incredible things all the time. So celebrate poetry always. Share it widely. Because sometimes, a poem can be exactly what you need.
