A Poet’s Guide To Poetry

Choose a dainty topic,
A muse,
Make it obtuse,
Complexity gives it stature.
If no one understands it,
It becomes even better.

Don’t forget your metaphors,
Nature works best,
Glistening drops
Dancing in a rainbow
Easily outdo the rest.

Remember to add rhythm,
A few random rhymes,
Find a word,
A sturdy bird,
Repeat a couple of times.

And finally,
Split the lines
When no
One expects a break.
Such tricks are your friends,
The latest trends,
As permanent as a melting
Snowflake.
