quote:
The purpose of poetry is to remind us
how difficult it is to remain just one person,
for our house is open, there are no keys in the doors,
and invisible guests come in and out at will.

What I'm saying here is not, I agree, poetry,
as poems should be written rarely and reluctantly,
under unbearable duress and only with the hope
that good spirits, not evil ones, choose us for their instrument.

Czeslaw Milosz

Maybe I should stop posting? LOL

Thanks for those links Kraw.
I quoted part of 'Ars Poetica,' one I found on that last link you provided.

Thanks, Kacy.
Yes, I too sometimes question that.  (MY posting, not yours) And you'll notice that I haven't posted much here of late, this one being a mere 2000 or so, and only 10% originals.
I try to write something every day, but most of what I write is crap, when I look back on it.
I keep writing in the event that once in awhile it might work.  A bit like photography that way.
I trust that you will keep moving your pen too.
