Poets cannot understand

war or

economics or

politics or

auto mechanics or

even bookkeeping

although they may pretend to.

These are things without love.

Poets can only

caress or

cradle or

nurse or

ween or

cause pain,

the kind that brings hope.

Very accurate I believe. Poetry is about the within and the transformation to the outside. Good stuff!

Hi Jef,

Thanks for your nurturing thoughts that awaken the artist in me.

The cognitive comes for the emotional aspect, at reasons expense. Nay... Feel or think?
