Making a Poem Is a Journey Inward

Making a Poem is a Journey Inward

It takes a great deal of inner work to make a poem. It may start with a sudden understanding of a dream, of a color or symbol. It may take years to gain an insight that your unconscious already understands. Making a poem makes the insight conscious. What was in darkness is brought into the light so it can be seen.

Then the raw poem must be crafted into a form through rhythm and sound.  The meaning works through what sound and rhythm suggest.
