Literate

p1030838

I read the poets,
they spoke to my heart,
not my every day heart, my deep heart,
the one down by the dark river.

Then one day, for just a moment
I felt the angel of peace settle
on my aching shoulders.

I wrote down what happened
and when I read it I found
I was reading a poem.

Now I am fully literate,
I can both read and write.
