The passing of a great poet - Gerald Stern.
Subscribe to The Charles Wright Substack to read his lovely personal essay about the poet and his work.
I couldn't seem to get a link. Beautiful, worth looking for.
The defiance of one can give courage to others.
- a paraphrase of a phrase in the tribute article by Charles Wright.
Wordplay is fun too. Arranging my paper is like art, painting with words. Does it look nice, does it flow, blend together between sections?
Stream of consciousness is apparent in my tendency, rather than linear planned outlines.
I like Haiku because you don't have to worry about rhyme or rhythm but it has flow in the syllable pattern.
Defiance of one,
Gives courage to those in need.
The oppressed, marginalized
Are likely to see.
May deny there's a need.
Condolences to friends, family, fans of Gerald Stern.
The road less traveled? Or the easy path?
