Solomon's Wealth and Wisdom, as in 1 Kings 3:1...

What is Poetry? It is the everyday
things that surprise, delight or entice me
Maybe, at times, it even frightens me

Poetry motivates me, putting pen
to paper, pondering life’s meaning but
“Everything is meaningless”, Solomon
said. Yet, throught poetry I find meaning.

In watching a blade of grass slowly grow
allowing birds to build their nests in spring
renewing the cycle of life once more.
