Poetry, A Deep, Deep Art

Rating: 5.0

Poets think,
Not only with their brain,
But with their heart,
The good thing is that,
Many times they cannot,
Tell reality and fiction,
Apart,
I believe Poetry comes,
Mainly from the heart,
And that is why Poetry is,
A deep, deep Art.

Although I am intellectual by nature and filter most of my experience in a cerebral way, I DO agree with you the HEART, not the head is the source and delta of poetry (using a river image) . Where as the head looks upward and ascends higher and higher, YOU'RE RIGHT the heart goes deep into primal waters like the Tao or into deep emotional commitment as in love. The great danger of being intellectual is pride, and the heart's truth is always accompanied by humility. Yes, I feel this poem is a necessary corrective for me because it alerts me to heart-truths. I'm grateful for it.
