Then there are the quiet ones, the ones that are said into the silence of thought and leave echoes. These are the ones which come back days, weeks, months, years later, creeping up on you at the most unexpected times and telling you something new about the world around you. Sometimes intellectual, sometimes obscure, these are the ghosts, the quiet whispers at the edges of your mind.
Just my own personal philosophy about poetry and why I enjoy it so much, both in reading and writing. I felt a bit introspective, since I have a new poem that just came out in The Gunpowder Review called "Sun-Death." The Gunpowder Review is a beautiful journal edited by Vonnie Winslow Crist, with the goal to, "publish the creative work of women writers, artists and photographers," based in Maryland. It is filled the unexpected gems from a number of very creative women - in fact, too many to list, so I hope you check it out!
