These many poems --some that I like .. and some not so much, leave me with a question: WHAT MAKES IT A POEM.

Through the haze of darkening dusk,
the peignoir of pine shimmers softly
near the edge, the mirror of water,
we breathe riparian clouds, disappearing
into the silky, silent surfaces.

Love "a golden shovel" form--for kids, too, to experiment.

Moving In Day

One picture on each wall, not many things at all.
Just waiting for them to come at one
With boxes bounded and another wrapped picture
Once they come the game is on
To unpack every box each
And unwrap picture for the last wall.
Moving day is stressful is it not
Pile of boxes and the rest is too many
For me to try to unpack a few things
To try to do all one’s self which at
This time I can’t find others to help at all.

Great prompt. That's a form with which I was not familiar! Love it.
