This blog is about poetry. The sheer love of it–the art of poetry, the music of words. In this context, we will explore all aspects of poetry. Some broad strokes are: (1) What is poetry? What is not poetry? (2) What is the inspiration which leads to placing your heart on paper? (3) How is it transformed or shaped so that the reader/listener can connect to its heart in a universal way?
From time to time, I will teach about the art of poetry and the crafting of poems. I’ll examine poems, including my own published works, profile poets, tease you with poetry prompts, discuss literary projects, promote products and services, comment on resources, announce selected poetry news and share poetry miscellany that might be helpful to you.
