but can you hear?

Poetry isn’t writing, not really.
It is the art of listening.

One thought on “but can you hear?

  1. …which is why I’m not a poet!!

    Writing poetry means you’re a tightrope walker, too, having to be very attentive to every step and every non-step.

    Writing poetry seems to mean living and listening between the lines.

    Writing poetry is hard and painful work, I think!

    No wonder you like to do the flamenco… 😉
