Poetry Is That Moment

Poetry is that moment 
a reprieve
a sigh
a deep breath
a pause
a reflection
with a listening heart.

By the poet's pen
each sounding word
each sounding line
a vibratory call
to body
to mind
to spirit
it is the pulsing heart that becomes known
it is the soul that soars
delight prevails
wisdom rejoices.
