Shakespeare Living Breathing Reincarnated - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

If Shakespeare were Buddhist
within another body reincarnated
what meaning to the famous lines
'To Be, Or Not To Be' would be defined...
Shakespeare living breathing reincarnated
reborn within another body animated
alive today to poetry would have found
his way back like salmon to birth streams...

'To be, or not to be... you would still be a Poet! '
decisive insightful a playwright a master of verse...
I agree totally, there can never be, a 'To write, or not
to write, we must write! ' when tyrant mind Muse does
strike most strong; with every fibre of our being; least
insomnia plague us nightly; all the days of our lives...

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Inspired by the poem 'To Be, Or Not To Be (Hamlet, Act Iii, Scene I) by William Shakespeare; and the comment by the poet Sunprincess

'Shakespeare if you are still here in another body..then
I am sure you have found your way back to poetry..this
is the answer to the question- To be, or not to be...you
would still be a Poet! '

my reply was

'Yes I agree totally, there can never be, a To write, or not to write, we must write when the Muse does strike most strong, with every fibre of our being, least insomnia plague us nightly, all the days of our lives :) '


Inspired by the poets William Shakespeare and Sunprincess.
