“Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It’s that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that’s what the poet does.”
Poetry exposes a poet’s inner soul. We take our deepest, most private thoughts- some we wouldn’t dare tell another soul– and create beautiful poetry. When we are quiet, we are thinking or observing. At least, I am. How about you?
Whether you are quiet or not, a poet or a writer of a different genre, keep writing! People want to read what you are creating!
