Listening to every heart
It requires pulling out all the stops, and how you REALLY experience your poetry. Now, if you have run across a poet of any given time period [like I have recently done] and you want to somehow rephrase what that poet says that strikes you to the core...
then go for it.
If we are to use our imaginations and try and figure how by whom you have been inspired, let us know. If it is to honor that poet that has made your soul sing, then share away.
Above all, have fun, and write on!
