Poetic thoughts 

POETRY IS basically something mysterious. 

Educated people know what a poem is, but wise poets go on writing because they really don’t know what a poem is, so every poem, in its uniqueness, is a part of the quest to find out. 

It is not possible to know poetry without trying to understand the individuals that make up the world, the bigger mystery in the big picture.

 A poem is not a thing, but a combination of good and bad traits that lend credence to our individual poetic voices. When we cross pens with other poets, we exchange our own characteristics with them.

 We may not have solved the mystery, but are closer to knowing poetry by being closer to other poets.
