      Poets are painters
      and the paint they use are their soul colours.
       
      No one can see how deep the ocean is
      or how deep the shore is
      but we know each other
      by what we reveal.
       
      Between the sea and the sky
      seagulls turn to fish the light
      mewing like stray cats.
      Poets belong to the waves and the tides
      like the moon and the calls of seagulls.
       
      Poets do not use a slide rule or compass
      to measure reality.
      Myth is made actual by their words.
       
      They speak from the centre of their poems
      and bid the world to dream of itself.
      They show us how the waves can be.
