Poetry And Religion

Rating: 3.2
Religions are poems. They concert
our daylight and dreaming mind, our
emotions, instinct, breath and native gesture

into the only whole thinking: poetry.
Nothing's said till it's dreamed out in words
and nothing's true that figures in words only.

A poem, compared with an arrayed religion,
may be like a soldier's one short marriage night
to die and live by. But that is a small religion.

While poetry may go with religion, it is not necessarily so. I can think of many poets who were unbelievers-Ginsberg, Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and new Zealand's C.K.Stead.
