Be a lotus flower…


“As a lotus flower is born in water, grows in water and rises out of water to stand above it unsoiled, so I, born in the world, raised in the world having overcome the world, live unsoiled by the world”


~ Buddha






You can tear a poem apart ~ Dylan Thomas





You can tear a poem apart to see what makes it tick…. You’re back with the mystery of having been moved by words. The best craftsmanship always leaves holes and gaps… so that something that is not in the poem can creep, crawl, flash or thunder in.

~ Dylan Thomas

~Dylan Thomas, Poetic Manifesto, 1961

National Poetry Month : Quotes about Poetry

In poetry and in eloquence the beautiful and grand must spring from the commonplace…. All that remains for us is to be new while repeating the old, and to be ourselves in becoming the echo of the whole world.

~Alexandre Vinet (1797–1847)


Poetry,—the language of the Imagination and the Passions,—the oldest and most beauteous offspring of Literature.

~Frederick Hinde, Poetry, a lecture delivered in London on the evening of April 8, 1858


The courage of the poet is to keep ajar the door that leads to madness.

~Christopher Morley, Inward Ho!


It is vain for the sober man to knock at poesy’s door.



No poems can please for long or live that are written by water-drinkers.

~Horace, Satires


The true poet is all the time a visionary and whether with friends or not, as much alone as a man on his death bed.

~W.B. Yeats

A poet is an unhappy being whose heart is torn by secret sufferings, but whose lips are so strangely formed that when the sighs and the cries escape them, they sound like beautiful music… and then people crowd about the poet and say to him: “Sing for us soon again;” that is as much as to say, “May new sufferings torment your soul.”

~ Søren Kierkegaard


Poetry is the revelation of a feeling that the poet believes to be interior and personal which the reader recognizes as his own.

~Salvatore Quasimodo


To have great poets there must be great audiences too.

~Walt Whitman


The sublimity of poetry, you see, lies in the fact that it does not take an educated person to understand it and to love it. On the contrary. The educated do not understand it, and generally they despise it, because they have too much pride. To love poetry it is enough to have a soul,—a little soul, naked, like a flower. Poets speak to the souls of the simple, of the sad, of the sick. And that is why they are eternal. Do you know that, when one has sensibility, one is always something of a poet?

~Octave Mirbeau, A Chambermaid’s Diary / Le Journal d’une Femme de Chambre, 1900, translated from the French by Benjamin R. Tucker


No man was ever yet a great poet, without being at the same time a profound philosopher. For poetry is the blossom and the fragrancy of all human knowledge, human thoughts, human passions, emotions, language.

~S.T. Coleridge (1772–1834), Biographia Literaria, 1817

We are Bound



A bundle of letters

in moments

of living

Bleeding ink

for love

Devils & angels

bound by the bond

we share

as lovers

of the written word

Quotes about Poets



The poet, therefore, is truly the thief of fire. He is responsible for humanity, for animals even; he will have to make sure his visions can be smelled, fondled, listened to; if what he brings back from beyond has form, he gives it form; if it has none, he gives it none. A language must be found…of the soul, for the soul and will include everything: perfumes, sounds colors, thought grappling with thought”

Arthur Rimbaud



“I act as the tongue of you,
… tied in your mouth . . . . in mine it begins to be loosened.”

~ Walt Whitman



“Oh what a poet I will flay myself into.”

Sylvia Plath



“If I wanted to understand a culture, my own for instance, and if I thought such an understanding were the basis for a lifelong inquiry, I would turn to poetry first. For it is my confirmed bias that the poets remain the most ‘stunned by existence,’ the most determined to redeem the world in words..”

~  C. D. Wright, Cooling Time:  An American Poetry Vigil



“We are blind and live our blind lives out in blindness. Poets are damned but they are not blind, they see with the eyes of the angels.”

William Carlos Williams

YOU GO GIRL! 🙂  👊🏻👊🏻

Mind-meld his thoughts with cosmic rays,

ZAP his mind with the ancient wisdom

coursing thru your psychic veins

You, Oracle of TRUTH,

mystical Hippie Chick

 Flower Child of the Universe

A New Age Yoko Ono searching

for her John Lennon 


Could it be true??

You finally found him!

Your twin flame, your other half,

your soul’s mate… 

except he doesn’t know it yet.  😦

‘Cause he can’t see into the

SPECIAL realm YOU inhabit.

He can’t feel the ancient connection

humming and vibrating

between your Souls


you’re gonna have to SHOW him 

you’re gonna have to Show him you’re

more special than ALL the others


Throw caution to the wind!

Shout it from the rooftops

how happy he makes you!

Sing songs of LOVE

at the top of your lungs

not caring who knows it!

NEVER give up

if he ignores you

NEVER bitch and whine 

Shake it off!

Stop worrying


what he writes

or why he writes

or who he ‘thinks’ is best

for him

It doesn’t MATTER!


You’re the ONLY one who truly adores him

and He WILL open his Heart and SEE it!

Until that day, your mission is

to NEVER stop showering gifts of words

NEVER stop telling the world how wonderful he is

WEED out all the posers

NO matter how long it takes!


You, were chosen by Fate to free him

by pouring relentless waves of desire

and breaking down his walls

and drowning the past

and waterboarding away

all the empty relationships

and penetrating his mind

in forced confessions

Clean the SLATE!

His new life is in your hands

Only YOU can open his eyes

with your unwavering


Only you CAN adore

him into adoring YOU!

Only you CAN Brainwash

his Heart with LOVE!

His surrender

written in the stars

your Stockholm Syndrome

Soul Mate !

Ready to jump into

the flames

as Your burn victim

of Twin flame Love !
