NaPoWriMo Day Seven: A Poem about Money, or Worth....

Poetry is Money     (-- an exercise in writing about 'worth' -- unedited)

Poetry's purchase
     is entertainment
     of body, mind, soul
     food for spirit
     grist for argument
proxy admission
     to confession
     transporting to
     vistas faraway
     or interior
Poetry's lesson
     not easily learned
          or forgotten
     pulsing its rhythm
     in time or theme
     like learning to sing
Poetry's voice is
        when you believe
     you can fly
     you can fly
     you can fly.

            Shirley Smith Franklin 4/15
