poetry as the pearl of a moment

portrait of chavela vargas, mexican cantadora

find the poem inside you

finding a pearl in a moment of awe. catch it and you have a poem.

poetry is that feeling of recall of what it was like to float gracefully within the womb, before langauge and light; before matter and sight.

someone once said, was it Rumi?, that we must take care to live with many moments of awe. 

everyone, be sure to experience a moment of awe. 

when you do, you will find your poem.
