I always thought that poets were people that write poems. From thefreedictionary.com:
1. A writer of poems.
2. One who is especially gifted in the perception and expression of the beautiful or lyrical
On Sunday, I realized that I am a poet, not because I write poems, but because I think I'm especially gifted in the perception of the beautiful or lyrical.
It stops me in my tracks, forcing me to pay attention. I see it everywhere and in almost everything and definitely in everyone. I even see beauty in ugliness. It makes me giddy, smile, gleeful and it makes me appreciate.
and it makes me want to share so that everyone can see it.
