Micropoem for the day: A poem a day

I usually do a writing session the first thing in the morning. Before I write, I read a short poem. It’s a good exercise to get my language going. Put a little fire into my words. Get a different perspective of the world I live in. It might be from one of a number of poetry books stacked up on the bookshelf behind me. Or it might be from poems.com. Usually it’s from an anthology I have on my kindle. Today’s poem was from Mervyn Morris. He’s a West Indian poet from Jamaica. The poem was called “Little Boy Crying” and there were two lines that struck me:

“of some obscure thing
a vitamin for the soul”
