Poetry + Ideas
I have always found connection, solace and inspiration in poetry. I've written poetry all my life as a way of getting all the things going on inside out to connect with the world.
Words have the power to bring people together, to change perspectives and unify vision and I believe that poetry makes ideas accessible in ways that draw in and engage people in a different way – from somewhere deeper than the rational mind.
"Poetry is not made out of thoughts or casual fancies. It is made out of experiences which change our bodies, and spirits, whether momentarily or for good." Ted hughes
