Very true. ...maybe that's why I don't write poetry;)
well did you read my piece? it was more like writing just to write but doesn't convey much that people will get.
thanks for reading... I felt a tad intimidated by this entry,Only because you wrote about poetry better than I actually write poetry ;) take it as a compiment :)I'm branching out now. Just keep feeding me the compliments and I'll keep writing :)and critizism is needed and wanted too! Love you number 2 brother.
I agree, although most people (including me) don't always realize that they are interfering. How do we learn to recognize that?
Steven:You gotta turn your spiritual tuning key till your innards resonate with the same frequency as the..."secret chord that David played and it pleased the Lord".There's not a practical/mental way to do this. The answer will be the same to this question.
Poetry has always been a journey inward--whether its confessional, transcendental, metaphysical, romantic, naturalistic, or spoken word. That is the un-learnable, mystical, Divine part, right? It’s the jet fuel that rockets language into transcendence.But there is a human, fleshy, part too; a craft part. Something that can be imitated, taught, or found, through practice.I think that even the awareness of the things you raised in this post is a step towards strengthening that human part
Steven: I agree.
