Why Poetry Is a Challenge (1)
04 Apr 2012 1 Comment
i find that writing poetry is a challenge for me when i am not in the middle of crisis or turmoil. When i am on a fairly even keel words often don’t flow easily.
And i am thinking… when the chaos overtakes and words flow out… will i be in a position to post those highly personal and intimate (and potentially drama causing for those who are in my life and around whom some of the chaos may be swirling) writings in such a public forum. i can totally understand Aniis Nin’s stipulation that parts of her journals not be published until after the death of those involved.
