Poetizing spontaneously without combusting

My New Years poem – We

WE

We are friends
climbing mountains
and building bridges
working together

We are pals
hanging around
street corners
singing to passerby

We are family
unmasking
ourselves
in promise

We are lovers
with the
intimacy
of no secrets

We are Old Testament
and New
Qur’an
and Tao

We are mankind
and womankind
of every color
of every gender
of every age
of every distinction

We are friends…

    What strikes me is the simplicity of the word choices, how each word is ‘common’ but assembled like this, they form a beauty and rhythm.
