On Poetry

Poetry is a whisper from the heart sneaking past the defenses of our tongues.

The keys that unlock our hearts are hidden everywhere and in plain sight. They’re in the song you heard that transported you to a magical place. They’re in the painting you saw that widened your eyes. And they’re in the book you read that sparked a profound change in your life.

Once the heart has been unlocked, it will start to sing. And I listen and pray when that song is in flight.
