The Poet

a poem by Robert M. Hensel

Words flow onto paper like rain, forming
giant rivers of unseen lands.
The very force guides us along a journey
that holds of great adventure.
We are the explorers of the literary world.
We must find the courage to write what
others are unable to, with the greatest of
A poet dreams, and then must portray his
visions upon the page that lies before him.
It is the beauty of all things that inspires
us to communicate in such a way.
A man does not wake up one day, and decide to
become a poet.
It must live in the very blood that courses
through his veins.
He is the creator of a world, only he has
He is the actor and director, of all that
speaks out through his pen.
He is a man of all men, visionary of all
What you haven’t seen, he has.
What you can’t say, he can.
For he is the poet.
