‘Why do we write?’
Why do we write story and poetry?
A Poem by Coyote Poetry
Old wise saying. “Nothing good to say. Say nothing.”
is a sacred incarnation of a smile.
Poetry is a sigh that dries the tears.
Poetry is a spirit who dwells in the soul,
who nourishment is the heart,
who wine is affection.
Poetry that comes not in this form is a false messiah.
Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry,
The philosophy which does not make me laugh
and the greatness which does not bow before children.
Why do we write poetry and story?
Kahlil Gibran expressed the real reasons for writing above.
Poetry and story is not to offend.
It can teach, motivate and make you cry or laugh.
Be graceful for writer’s who shared their words and thoughts.
Never be negative in public.
Send a personal e-mail with an offer of assistance.
Poetry can dance on a page.
Can make us envision beauty or pain.
May take us to a new world of fantasy or a journey into the past.
There is no perfect Poet or Writer.
We must find a proper edge of understanding with the reader.
Words should be a pleasure to read. Not a challenge.
We need a billion new writer’s and Poet’s.
People who see and understand our world.
A person who tried to understand history, love and modern times.
People need hope and dreams.
Not sadness and naysayers.
Better to be a kind teacher than looking for weaknesses in our things.
Thank you Writer’s Cafe for reading my poetry and story.
Many had assisted an old man.
Remember never too old to learn.
A wise person tried to learn something new dally.
Kindness and love lead to good places and good friendship.
