My Secret Superpower

By CHANA PERMAN

My superpower
(let’s call it that)
is wearing a poetic hat
Giant puzzle, this world
each piece, a string of words
(I arrange them in my mind,
fluttering giddy birds)
I spot a baby worm
intently plodding along
Tiny beautiful sights
each bursting soulful song
They all converse with me
such depth and mystery
I unravel life’s deep secrets
(as
I
pen
poetry)
