APRIL: is national poetry month. Carl Sandburg said, “Poetry is a fresh morning spider-web telling a story of moonlit hours of weaving and waiting during the night.”
Sandburg also said: “Poetry is the achievement of the synthesis of hyacinths and biscuits.” AND I call it, what every human being needs, ” bread and roses.”
“So many times I’ve read a poem and suddenly felt what the poet’s voice brought to me and I said, ‘yes, that is what I felt but could not find words for the experience, now the poet speaks for me too’.”
Poetry is how our feeling thoughts talk and we share those words with family, friends, and others.
