Answer Me Poet

It has been awhile, but I am back posting a bit of  my poetry. 

You may write poetry around me, embroider it
or craft it into a pearl necklace. The dew on

the lily by the lake. The little bird plump, hiding
in the shrubbery.  Lovers intertwined.  I remember

you.  I remember him, the poet of the sad eyes and
witness to so much tragedy inside and outside himself.

There is so much I do not understand and which I
question, the lightening that flickers dangerously

in the distance on a muggy summer's evening,
the wars that will not end.  Answer me poet and

and drop the syllables into my barely eloquent mouth.
