Let poetry flow on World Poetry Day

Today is World Poetry Day
Let those who can write
Let those who can’t read

Today, let's just do it
Let the words freely flow
And snowball into lines

Let the lines well up rhymes
Let the rhymes flow into verses
And verses mould us a poem

Let the poems illuminate our minds
And reveal the fecundity of the poet’s mind
While we celebrate what we cherish

Let humanity be entangled
In the labyrinth of our connectedness
As creations from a single source
