simple truth

*****

they say
the hallmark of genius
is its simplicity

i
have found this
to be true

it follows
then
that

even seeming
simplicity may well
be genius

unrecognized by we
who are still searching
for the complex

i secretly suspect
that everyone
is a genius

at something
which
were it

allowed, nay
encouraged,
to blossom

would bring to
all
around us nothing

but
the very, very best
of everything

Among us, poets are not paid. The poet/editor of this website, being physically disabled, lives at a fraction of her nation’s poverty level, and is presently homeless. Become a patron of the fine arts at: https://www.gofundme.com/are-you-a-patron-of-the-arts
