Poems are not just about words by J.S. Watts

Poetry with spaces
its meaning
ever so slightly sideways
giving it room to breathe
opening up places
you didn’t know
were there but always were
waiting to be seen
waiting to be dreamed
leaving faint traces
of things beautifully unspeakable
that will take root
in time
and blossom
and bear fruit
and be.

Great poem! the phrase "waiting to be dreamed" gave me a nice warm fuzzy feeling.
