Rythm and Rhyme

A passion for words

I used to line up soup cans
wash my kitchen floor
but no more
now I read books instead
and write poetry.

Consumed with a passion for words
their texture and sound
words combine to create
a syncopated beat of
rhythm and rhyme.

Each poet’s story unique
as the words
they dance and play
to express
the voice within.
