My Life, My Passion

My Life, My Passion

Taking it all in,
Writing it all down,
This is what I do,
This is what I love.

The detailed sketching
Of a perfect moment in time,
Something with meaning,
Meant to both be shared and kept private
In our most personal places of memory.
For holding,
For safe keeping,
For use sometime later.

This is poetry,
This is prose,
This is Language,
And this is the power of words.
