A Poem

How is a poem to be formed?

Put it together with a wealth of words;

that doesn’t sound so hard.

First, take a basket of imagination;

then augment it with an ounce of onomatopoeia,

and a magnum of metaphor;

perhaps a pinch of paradox,

with a sliver of simile,

and maybe some alliteration

with attitude.

Then blend it with a measure of meter,

and stir it all together.

But to make it sing,

ah – that’s the thing.

The magic is in the mix.

The magic is in the mix.. Indeed..
The mechanics of creating this magic is so surreal..
