“If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash”

“Poetry is not only dream and vision; it is the skeleton architecture of our lives. It lays the foundations for a future of change, a bridge across our fears of what has never been before. ” Audre Lorde

“Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash. ” Leonard Cohen

The pages are still blank, but there is a miraculous feeling of the words being there, written in invisible ink and clamoring to become visible”  Vladimir Nabakov

If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don’t write, because our culture has no use for it” Anais Nin

“A word after a word after a word is power”
Margaret Atwood
