Why poetry? Robert Graves.

Quote by Robert Graves:

“…only gold ore can be turned into gold; only poetry into poems.”

This was a revelation, and it explained why I suddenly started writing poetry. My style is a little different. I’d never been much into reading poetry. Why the heck did I suddenly start writing it? I’m a more recent ‘writer,’ prefering art, dance, and whatever else struck me.

The poetry confused me until I read that.

Poetry just happens.

It simply ‘is.’

    True, I noticed that my poetry started getting much more what I thought and hoped it should be after I stopped worrying about thinking about it and just started doing/feeling it.
