Do   You   Write   Poetry?

Well, if you do...you've found a new home. Poetry is my dream. It is the air which gives me life and the outlet through which I can breathe. This site is dedicated to groovy poetry - that of my own creation and that which I admire in others. I hope to add many other interesting links, but providing a platform for poetic expression is my main goal. In my celebration of poetry, I must mention the most beautiful and effectively poetic movie of my time...Dead Poets Society. Some of you may ask yourselves, "Why poetry? What's the point? Who cares?" Well, I'll answer that question with a quote from Mr. Keating: "We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. Now, medicine, law, business, engineering-those are noble pursuits, and necessary to sustain life...but poetry, beauty, romance, love-these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, 'O me! O Life!...of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faitless--of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O Life?' Answer: That you are here-that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and that you may contribute a verse.' That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?" I'm creating a place for my passion to grow and invite any who feel the same to join me...
