Talk about having a love for one’s art, I love writing poetry and have gotten quite good at it over the years. A poem is a picture in words, sounds and thoughts that rings the bell of emotion, of psychological harmony and of discord that exists within us all. It is a recording of physical sensation that gives us (the vicarious perceiver﷓reader) the revived consciousness from our memories of past experience or anticipation of events yet to come. A poem forms the squeezing of our beings so that droplets of nostalgia and pleasant emotional experience reveal the environmental building blocks that are the source of ourselves. It is an empathy; a sharing of similar experience with another who exists or has existed. It is a symphony in sounds and words and form that creates its own music. A poem is the verbal and sonorous appreciation of nature and existence as perceived and interpreted into the semantics of human psyche.
Most importantly, a poem is a sharing as both writers and readers are of the same body﷓﷓the poem. If any poet could be granted just one wish, it would be that you, the reader, not only enjoy sharing our poems but, that you share a humble comprehension of the underlying beauty of existence which brings us together through the medium of poetry.
