Musings from the Masters

Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash.
~~ Leonard Cohen~~

Poetry is truth in its Sunday clothes.

~~Joseph Roux

Poetry is what in a poem makes you laugh, cry, prickle, be silent, makes your toe nails twinkle, makes you want to do this or that or nothing, makes you know that you are alone in the unknown world, that your bliss and suffering is forever shared and forever all your own.

~~Dylan Thomas~~

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry

.~~Emily Dickinson~~

Poetry is the journal of a sea animal living on land, wanting to fly in the air.

~~ Carl Sandburg~~

Poetry is that wonderful medium where you can tell of an epic occasion or express a simple truth. It can be flowery, stark, wordy or concise. It is a basket full of words scattered on a page in such an arrangement as to portray emotion or tale.

~~Fyn Dorian~~
