Because we need poetry (Find peaceful rest, Dr. Maya Angelou)

Words can glow.
They can bring unexpected light,
Unanticipated power.
Emotion can be raised, lifted
By the strength of thought.

Words can bring breath:
Oxygen you can see and hear.
Fundamental fuel
That you breathe in at all times.
That you'd miss if not there.

Words can be anywhere.
Words can be everywhere.
Love can be anywhere.
Love can be everywhere.

Dr. Maya Angelou, thank you.
