Spirit of Words

Poetry is
The essence
Of language
Oceans of words
To a few lines
Not one word
Out of place
Not one extra

Grapes must pass
Beyond juice
Beyond wine
To become brandy
So must writing
Be tended
To achieve poetry

Write a novel
   Cut it to novella
      Slice it to short story
         Pare it to flash fiction

Only then
Can you remove
The chaff
And call it
A poem
