Poetry -



I have been going through old photos and putting out my Halloween decorations.  I went out with Tiger and Bella in the dark to hang my Halloween windchime.  I figured if they can see in the night so can I.  It is very still and the predicted rain not yet here.  I definitely feel the slide toward Halloween and the opening of the door of November 1st and the night of the dead.  

Poetry is essential.  We each must write.   David Whyte has this to say.


Poetry is a break for freedom. In a sense all poems are good; all poems are an emblem of courage and the attempt to say the unsayable; but only a few are able to speak to something universal yet personal and distinct at the same time; to create a door through which others can walk into what previously seemed unobtainable realms, in the passage of a few short lines."
