Painting is silent poetry; and poetry is painting that speaks.
Poetry is the one place where people can speak their original human mind. It is the outlet for people to say in public what is known in private.
Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.
If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can ever warm me; I know that is poetry.
I consider myself a poet first and a musician second. I live like a poet and I'll die like a poet.
I truly loved being pregnant and feeling what was going on inside my body and watching it change. It's difficult to recoup; but still amazing nonetheless. I would have another one.
