What Is Poetry (Bussokusekika) - Poem by Edwin Tanguma

What Is Poetry (Bussokusekika)

What is poetry
Too some its fire and wine
Burning yet quenching
Is it intoxicating
Each person has their own view
Shall we drink 'til we are drunk

    To me is nothing but the ability to feel the softness on a thorn, strength in a feeblest being, beauty in the ugliest entity and so on. Yes, each has his/her own view. Good thinking. (Report) Reply
