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!
