Here are some musings on poetry itself...
'Poets are caretakers of language, the shepherds of words, keeping them from harm, expoitation & misuse. Words not only mean something, they ARE something; each with a sound and rhythm all its own. Poets draw us into a deeper respect for the reality of the words they set before us.' Eugene H. Peterson
'Science is for those who learn, Poetry is for those who know'. Joseph Roux
'I write, because it gets things out. I write because I want to leave something of myself behind when I'm gone. I write because everything else in my life is mundane and it bores me to tears. I write because I don't want to be mediocre.' Amy Carmichael
