what is a poem?

an urgent emotion
a fleeting flash of an image
a beautiful surprising moment
no beginning, no end
no moral, no cause or effect
an ethereal illusive understanding that
vanishes as quickly as it materialises
like lightning, like a newborn's first smile
you can never completely grasp or capture it
if you try to hold on to it, it simply ceases to exist
like love.
