Humans. My dog writes really lousy stuff. (His paintings are pretty good, though.)

Ron, I'm impressed. My dog can't write poetry... he sticks with doing my books... a left-brainer I guess.

the best poetry comes from.....mmmm...

let me see, comes it from this pen maybe...
or is it the hand that write these glee
or perhaps it is some combination
that gives a poet inspiration
or should it be the mystic soul
pouring out the poets whole
let me tell,  I don't have a clue
where comes from the best poetry
all I know it's not from me
but hey we can read them here
that means that I can't fill the line
will leave it blank for that's no crime
share it  with us if you know  the truth
off course, I will leave that up to you.

It comes from a source you can't define actually - my poetry writes itself - I'm just the messenger.

For a change, I'm serious here. I've wondered about it many times, even had discussions about it with our local Dark poet Michael.

Personally, I think misery stands my writing in good stead for several reasons - one, is my tendancy to ponder the happy times more than when I'm spending time living them. Another is that I like dark thoughts, dark poetry - I've never been one of those rose petals and sunny day kinda happy feeling guys. Darkness can be just as beautiful as the light...

Everybody else but me........maybe some day



I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily

frankly my dear, i don't  . . . really want to know.  just kidding.  well, sort of.
i haven't got a clue, i'm just trying to nurture it, whatever the h*** it is.  
i can be surprised by what others write and just as surprised by what i write.  i should try to explain that?  
and why is there so much written and it's all different?  maybe it's just that we are each a curious individual and we have to deal with that.  creativity and imagination can explain most anything . . .

Comes from.........

Understanding within.

Actually I'm not sure, it comes from the feeling of connection between the writer and the reader. It's a love affair of sorts, good poetry is the answer to the question you haven't ever asked.

Sven, the answer is it depends on the reader, and the writer. And in this readers case good poetry is here.

Take care love as always

ah, but how do we know that the writing is honest dreamkeeper??  

we don't. . . or do we?  Are we forced to take the poet at his/her word and belive that they are writing from life?

I liked your response, that's why I'm highlighting it with my question. . . I agree with you, honesty is a quality of some of the best writing. . .

Well, I think it's a difference of surface writing and depth.
I think when we face ourselves for exactly who we are, including our imperfections, faults, etc....and are willing to see our deepest parts of ourselves it shines out beautifully. Takes us to a deeper level of seeing, understanding and writing.     

To capture and live a moment is truly living
