A couple years ago I said a stupid thing about not really liking poetry. It was like that other stupid thing I had said, over 20 years ago, about the lack of usefulness of an English degree.
Poetry has now become a lifesaver. I have the poem, The Journey by Mary Oliver, printed and displayed at my desk. I read it every day and on some days several times, as a mantra, as a prayer.
Today I came across another poem that so resonated on a site I go to for inspiration Bev Barnes and Derek Walcott.
Is there a poem or a piece of prose that inspires you? Please share a link.
