the Insanity of Poetry

where do words come from? from what silent grove did language emerge? and the insanity of poetry? between the “blank page” and the “printed” poem, a universe sits. the artist weaves silence into noise before disdaining reality in a moment of quiet fire. ashes fall from the sky, before quietly finding their oblivion in the wet red earth of the mind.

 

Hughes’ thought fox hides silently behind the foliage of every poet’s fingers. sometimes days pass before it shows its face.

 

poetly is an endeavour to seek out this thoughtfox, to find the moment when the light of creation throws truth into sudden relief.

 

not one word less. not one word more.
