Every Song a Poem

Poems are meanings,
attempts at meaning-making,
successes and failures and in-betweens.

Sometimes we are alone.
Sometimes we hear our children
use phrases like, “outside of Time and Space.”
These kinds of poems talk about life and its
songs, our anthems, laments, and jubilations.

They are creations and we are creators.
God is Poet, ever-present, ever-creating
meaning-maker.   And this, another ars poetica.

But it never tires of me, poetry.  Nor I of it.
Nor God of me.  Nor I of God.

    I love how you tie in poetry and God in “but it never tires of me, poetry. Nor I of it./ Nor God of me. Nor I of God. Great ending couplet. This is truly a song singing poetry!! Full of life and meaning!!!
