Poetry: The Music of Manuscripts

I sincerely value art and literature in human life. Poetry is the essence of human urge and awareness. The mystic of art and literature delightfully reveals the kaleidoscope of science through colorful flair of human aspiration. It amalgamates the spiritual romanticism and intellectual cadence of human beings in the perennial journey along the corridor of nature’s panorama of blissful beauty.

Poetry is a stream murmuring our emotional songs all through its journey. Life is a boat sailing on the ripples of art and literature. Science is the composite reflection, Poetry is its genetic soul. Let us put poetry to thrive in time and anti time, in matter and anti matter. Let it speak out the truth of human life.

Re Haiku-MusicOf Manuscripts
Well, yeh, this takes me back to the early days of the Internet, when Prodigy was king of the hill and AOL was called Quantum I believe it was, that was 1983or84.
Well Prodigy had the new and exciting graphics windows, no photos or anything, but it was really exciting for us to post our text into windows, and talk to one another.
Now Bobby Tojo's Uncle, known as Shirato,who knew everything there is to know about Haiku, and I had heated discussions about Haiku and poetry, he insisted that if we took poetry too seriously then poetry would control the poet and not the other way around. I pretty much agreed with this, and still do, but Shiraito also insisted that it is impossible and immoral to write Haiku in English or any other language than Japanese. And he supplied us with many references to support his opinion. Now his nephew, Bobby Tojo, educated in Frisco (USA)

Re Haiku
Bobby Tojo, Educated in USA wrote and published his 3 liners all over the place, and I wrote a bunch, too, but Uncle Shiraito insisted, "It ain't Haiku..."

But we just kept on writing our "stuff" and Uncle read our stuff but he still laughed at us. LOL

Re Responsibility as Poets
Although we are grossly under-rewarded for our poetic labor, I don't think we should take our responsibility lightly. Every person on the planet, at one time and/or others, admit they love poetry. If we could find a way to translate this love into sales, wouldn't it be great?

Read Ivor's fantastic poem FINAL NESTING PLACE right here on this board. It deals with a truth all around us in a way no other p in history has ever done. Very effective, and what makes it so great is that it deals with a truth, but gives the reader a choice in the outcome. Either nothing at death, or everything at death. He, Ivor, handles his responsibility as a poet very effectively. But I will also post one I recently wrote, I LOVE YOU DEATH, and notice that there is no choice for the reader. It is not a responisble poem, although it is a good poem.
