Poetry means

Poetry means expressing the person, and the person is always in community, always a community. Poetry means the something more, the something larger. Poetry includes a rolling up of sleeves and setting to work. It means beauty, truth, goodness. It is about making…making beauty, truth, goodness.

Poetry is hearing the music, seeing the dance, making the movements, of a shared world—larger, more beautiful, more truth-full, more good.

So the work of this lawyer is to make poets out of the people I meet—makers of beauty, truth, goodness—those who add value to our shared world.

Rhymes not needed, verse not needed: only seeing, feeling, being. Hearts, hands, heads, fingers, lungs, mud, fire, wind, water.
