Are Poets Selfish or Do They Have the Right Idea?

“To gain your own voice, you have to forget about having it heard. Renounce that and you get your own voice automatically. Try to become a saint of your own province and your own consciousness, and you don’t worry about being heard in The New York Times.” Allen Ginsburg

Lakeside in the Spring

Haiku from my Brown Bear Diary after hosting the Word Lovers Retreat at the Idlewyld:

Lavender, tall blue,
Black cats lounge, see gold-eyed.
Stay right spirited.

Seagulls plunge, drop, spray,
Tumble into waves, glide forth.
Damp mood ascends high.

Big-branched tree hides
upstairs porch above rockers.
Create words freely.
