I told someone last night that it’s as if lightning has split a tree and a new green thing is emerging that doesn’t have any idea of what it is , this business of pouring forth poetry. It’s a sort of mania, I believe, when the creative sap is running and you’re still up at 6 a.m. immersed in words. Please check out what I hope is a poem that will make you laugh at La Parola Vivace…xxxj
New Poem Alert…
23 Sunday Jan 2011
So much to love in this poem and I especially enjoyed:
And Stein with Alice and her tender button,
Gershwin knew enough to swim
With Hemingway and his Nick Caraway
In spite of that foul-mouthed Sartre
The clarifying lines were as creative and enjoyable as the poem and I often think it would be interesting and fun to ask poets to write about their inspiration for a given poem.
I enjoy YOUR creativity so much!
