Poetry is....

Poetry is the place where language in its silence is most beautifully articulated. Poetry is the language of silence. ~John O' Donohue


With the birth
of a poem,
     comes a flow
     of frustration,
anxiety,
excitement, and joy...
     A poem
     is a song,
created by
the soul,
     that will live beyond
     my own mortality.....
   
                             ~unknown author




Once,
by a bitter candle
of oil and braided rags,
I wrote verses
about love and sleigh bells.


                         ~Margaret Atwood
