“Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.” ~ Allen Ginsberg

"Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet."
~ Plato

'I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night."
~ Sarah Williams

"Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen."
~ Leonardo da Vinci

I am no Icarus; I have never been burned by you
Lightning has poured from your hands like Zeus
And I recall a Poseidon wave of silence

But you have wisdom like Athena, my love
And I've seen the way Eros pushed you around
Apollon is your namesake, yes, poetry is your song

But maybe I am Icarus; my wings are melting now
I am falling back to you, Hestia bless this home
