Express

This prompt took some time. I finally had to just apply myself and begin typing words to make the ideas gel. But we are more than halfway through poetry month!

The prompt was to write an express poem. ^_^ Here goes:

Poets Express

The World English Dictionary says
that when one expresses something,
one transforms (ideas) into words.

That is the best way of saying
just what it is we do
when we express ourselves
in poetry.

In April, when we challenge
ourselves, reapply for our
poetic licence,
and inundate our blogs
with self-expression,
wracking our brains for
just
the
right
words
we reaffirm our love
for those words and
their myriad meanings
embrace.

And via this information superhighway,
this expressway of expression,
we poets express our innermost
thoughts
dreams
ideas
memories
and cryptic ramblings
to the world;
that is when we
arrive on the fast train,
the Poets’ Express.
