Many times I’ve danced the day and lengthened shadows with words as they sail from the unknown to blank pages of rhyme. I have tried many times to put into words feelings that are deep, important, and yet difficult to name. To tell myself the truth in a beautiful way, that I cannot live without it.” I have tried to capture a feeling, a sound and a glimpse of my soul as I wondered the corridors of my mind.
We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion, and medicine, law, business, engineering, these are all noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.
