My love of poetry comes from the same place as my love of philosophy-
a love of wisdom
Both ponder over the transcendent holy,
whilst also celebrating the humble and the ordinary-
an exploration of the human condition,
coming to me in divine inspiration,
the ‘secular twin’ of religion.
‘Poetry compresses profound meaning into a few words. It reaches deep within us to confront and answer questions about the meaning of life, why we love and die, and what our purpose is for being here.’
First made into language,
then an idea,
then into more tangible action,
Poetry is the way we can help give name to the nameless
so it can be thought.
‘Carved from the rock experiences of our daily lives’,
bearing open the vulnerabilities of being human,
poetry helps us to make sense of things
