MY VIEWS ON POETRY



Life is too real to be believed, yet we must keep dreaming and try to live with a resonance of what we think while we touch various levels of reality—political, social, personal, or spiritual—and  be ourselves.
Genuine poetry happens as an event  to  be truthful, clear, courageous, and honest to oneself; to be open about things one often tries to conceal. Poetry provides an opportunity for expressing ones intimate moments with the same passion as while talking about the interwoven outer realities.
My experience convinces me that we are not limited by what we are, but we are limited by what we are not.  Poetry becomes a means to overcome this limitation, and thus, allows us not only to know ourselves but also to expand on what we are.  This means we should remain open to healthy revisions that we can make to our way of thinking, and incorporate new perspectives into our outlook.  In other words, we should  not let our own rigidity destroy our potential, but rather we should evince a forward-looking, tolerant, and open mindset if we wish to create future.
I don’t know if my poetry fits in what I think at the moment but poetry does help us traverse the boundaries of hesitation to see the joy of fulfillment.

We lost each other. Are you interested in receiving my newsyletters from the Salon? My Son revised my new website, Mother's Day gift. Haven't posted any stories/poetry yet, but will soon. Shall link to your blog also. Do send me some works to post/read at the Salon. Celebrated three years this past May,approx. 60 people have been attending for the past few months, more entertainment than true Salon, but enjoyable nonetheless.
Hope this comment finds you in good spirits and health.

Thanks Susana for taking note of this one. I'm sorry for the long gap in our communication, but I have been getting information about your salon regularly.
Since the operation of the cataract in my left eye, I have been unable to sit at my computer for longer hours. I still have problem in my vision which will go only after the cataract in the right eye is removed and the vision stabilizes.
Love
