Poets may not change the world, but we do start the quiver in the snow that leads to the avalanche of change. That is enough for me.

  1. Awesome quote 🙂 I hope one day I’ll eventually be a poet too haha. For now, it feels like an experiment 🙂 I’m working on some new poetry but they’re not quite ready to publish yet. Thanks for sharing with us.

    • You are most welcome and I am glad you like the quote. Nothing wring with experiments in poetry, in face it is how to come up with some really unique work. I hope you will share yours soon.

  2. A great quote.

  3. I love your poetry blogs. I’m keeping a log of ideas for poems and, as soon as I finish my current writing project, I am going to write poems.

    • That is a good idea. I hope you post some when you have them written out.
