The State of Things

Poetry is a daunting, scary thing to most people. Inaccessible and confusing, poetry is usually thought of as being dead.

But, it is alive, just barely. It lives on in song lyrics, plays, movies, fiction, and the visual arts. While the written word searches for its place in today’s digital market, poetry sits patiently, waiting for it to be appreciated by more than a select few.

The purpose of this blog is to bring poetry back to the masses, to raise awareness of poetic adventures across this great world of ours, and to hopefully be poetic in the process. There will be a lot of exploring and a lot of writing.

I hope you enjoy this experiment.
