an opinion for consideration

composing poetry is like going on a journey, agreed?

a meditative privileged pilgrimage

albeit a not so easy voyaging experience of the mind

sometimes to the point of breaking or beyond

depending on the poet's skills and courage or the lack of


but no pilgrimage whether to

Trial City, Errorsville

or our most desired of all destinations

the lands of perfected imagination

is still nothing less than a necessary expedition

a good poet needs to take


in order to try and literarily promote the variable worthinesses  

of all of life's aspects.

To me, this makes our roles in its purpose feel blessed


and this is why dear boys and girls

we love and long to go on these very pilgrimages

and why poetry needs to go on and on being written.


Are we agreed?

I think so!
