COME TO FIND POETRY - ORKNEY FEBRUARY 11 TO 17

POETRY WORKSHOP FOR ALL WHO LOVE SPEAKING POETRY: FROM HAIKU TO HOPKINS AND ONWARDS…A GALLIMAUFRY OF POETS

PABLO NERUDA SAYS:

 

And it was at that time... Poetry came

to find me. Don't know, don't know from where,

it leapt, winter or the river.

Don’t know how or when

 

COME TO FIND POETRY - ORKNEY FEBRUARY 11 TO 17

There are still some places in this workshop

 

WE EXPLORE THE POWER OF WORDS and rhythm and rhyme

 

and something began in my soul,

fever or lost wings

                           **************

I drink to the word, lifting

a word or a glass of crystal,

in it I drink

the wine of language

                           ***************

I take the word and traverse it

as if it were solely human form,

its lineaments delight me and I fly

                           ****************

I pronounce and I am and I reach without speech

the silence at the end of words.

 

Ah  -  Neruda  -  !
