“Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash.” ― Leonard Cohen
Dreaming about Poetry
Dreams are remnants of a busy life
Always dreaming, never remembering
Just reminds me of things I have forgotten
throughout the day, the pressures of daily living
My life is not burning very well
Poetry gives the evidence, however,
I don’t believe it’s ash, it would blow away
as poets say, poetry lives with us forever
