How We Write Poetry

Answer, turn and answer / Then turn the stone again

Poem

This is how we write poetry in my land
We look upon a facet, then turn the diamond
We ask, consider, further ask
Answer, turn and answer
Then turn the stone again

For what is poem but beauty
Chiseled and laid over thought?
And what is poem but wisdom
A fire within the jewel?

And why is poem but memory
Given to one who would hear?
Why is poem but searing
That memory into myself?
