Poem: I am a Poet

When I teach poetry, I love to give this assignment. The title, “I am a Poet”. I’ve written several of these. Here’s one…

My galoshes are words
My rainhat a pause
My thoughts all a muddle
In a rippling puddle
Rhyming words splash
Thunder clouds clash
An umbrella frames it
A moment names it
A raindrop
A rainbow
I can’t bear it
I have to share it
Whatever I feel
Or learn
I know it
I can’t keep it quiet
I have to write it
Cuz I’m a poet
