hands wring. there is
no sound of bells
only the swish of red pens
scouring for the rogue syllable.

can a flame be forced from a candle?

can emotion be measured in a breath?

the answer does not lie
amongst academic musings
but in a heart, daring to journey
and connect with its soul.

Its true…no amount of technically correct written material could make up to a piece written with the writer’s heart and soul..
I rememebered back in college my professors would tell me i need to connect with the one reading…i need to put my heart into it..cos without connection it would be useless..

I love this description of the writing process, Davy. Even when editing my work, hours fly by. My heart must be connected to my soul because I’m driven to stop washing dishes so that I can improve some word or sentence. I don’t claim to be any good, though. πŸ™‚ But I’m still driven to write.

    In my view the passion to write overrides the more technical aspects Laura. I don’t think there is good or bad writing, it is all writing we apply our judgements and values to. There will always be somebody somewhere who will connect with our thoughts. Keep writing πŸ™‚

A great follow up to the cafΓ© discussion on the use of the word Poet. This is an erudite and beautiful piece that by sleight of hand left my synapses firing and my face doing a pretty good impression of a Cheshire cat. Thank you Mr D.

Once again, I find myself in awe. Passion to create can not be taught or bought.

This is what I always talk about: the difference between heart writing and head writing. It is important to feel and not think, when poetry is concerned. Head writing may make you swoon but heart writing will touch you in the deepest parts of you. And that is what true poetry is all about. This was a beautiful and a very apt write!
