Graceful Movements to Diction (Poetry) - by Bob Atkinson

(c)2015 Bob Atkinson
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speech 

sensing such an open point
we feel one must arrange
those words within a framework
adding feeling to a page

to impart an idea
in prose goes straight to point
yet leaves one confused
as if on a bumpy road

rhythm sends a message of
direction free and clear
as if on compass point
a way for us to steer

while, on the other hand
prose hasn't got a clue
as to meaning of these words
no simple force by attitude

textbooks written gingerly
with rhythm and good rhyme
allow for impression of a point
to remain within our minds

having said these words to you
feel I must confess
I cannot comprehend all that
lies in a jumbled mess

when organized with care
words have a strong effect
they blend with all our insides
giving our minds a rest
