The Prize Itself

  The Prize Itself

“Poetry a record of human experience
As valuable as history:”

History, a record valuable as earthly presence
In all forms, all entities;
Legged, armed, bodied we –
An all-inclusive’ family.

A prize is – what?
A symbol of the unsurpassed,
Superlative? First-class? The best?
What is best when all are vested
In and dressed
In talents endless:

Individuality, unique
But incomplete .
To be refined and re-defined
Each passing second, blessed first.
I surmise, each one the prize
Itself.
The Prize Itself 5.24.2022 Circling Round Existence; Arlene Nover Corwin
