#NaPoWriMo2017 April 8 – Poetry is just the prelude

Day #8 – Poetry is just the prelude

Poetry is just the prelude, I’ve learned,
unwrapping the gift of story and song –
a foretaste of contemplated action,
the calm before the storm.

Poetry is just the prelude.
But the rabbit hole of disinformation
has no welcome mat – it runs deep
and long, darkening our days.

Poetry is just the prelude –
a bit of verse can pierce the blackness
of a clouded night, illuminating
the false path and the true.

Poetry is just the prelude.
Always better to chose the outcome
of your actions, to look before
leaping to false conclusions.
