Here you can share your new poetry, whatever that means. No reruns please, let's make it about right now. 🖋️✒️ To be a poet, I once believed, was to write aesthetically: violet blues and rosy reds dancing along to rhythmic beat. Seeing surface without substance, was it broken paedagogy? Why, Mister King, 10th grade teacher, couldn't you name this as magic? Not those gleamy popular tropes. These are symbols, woven patterns, invocations of higher form; spirit flowing, revealing self. Not my power, I am quite small; something greater, living po'try, like cloud lightning looking to strike, searching for the path down. Poetry is divination. The poet is a symbol mage. Urgent lesson, poorly learned, but it's never too late to start. A lifting pen beacons intent; listening mind opening doors, and persistence inks the contract letting it flow out from within. Poetry is foundational. Poetry can inform all arts. Poetry can animate words with certain power, coiled up on page.
