I must apologize to my “poetry and then some” readers for slacking off so badly. I have been rather “wrapped up” one might say in the “NanoPoblano” 30 day challenge to write a blog post every day for the month of November. I am not a blogger by nature so this has been particularly challenging. I am accomplishing this or at least trying to on my other blog “Thought You Might Like This” diannesthingsat.wordpress.com. In the meantime here are some good quotes by others. I hope to be back in full force and form after the holidays. Will be traveling to see grandkids, first to Charleston then to Albany New York in December for Christmas. Then if I can get my rusty poetry gears running I’ll get back to poetry. Thank you for your patience. Stay with me!
Poetry, my dear friends,
is a sacred incarnation of a smile.
Poetry is a sigh that dries the tears.
Poetry is a spirit who dwells in the soul,
who’s nourishment is the heart,
who’s wine is affection.
Poetry that comes not in this form is a false messiah.
“Poetry is the insistent roaring of the human soul.”, Pietros Maneos
