Spotting poems...

"Poems are everywhere.  
The poet's job is to 'spot them'. 
To see them for what they are.  
The poet watches for poetic moments 
like a bee seeks out a bloom.  
In fact, the bee and the poet
 have a lot in common.  
The bee seeks out a bloom 
and transforms it into honey; 
the poet seeks out a moment 
and transforms it into a poem." 

~ Allan Wolf

I really like this quote.  Poems surround us every day; we just have to seek them out.  Try looking for poems in the world around you today!
