Poetry - Inspirational Quotes

I recently came across these quotes from other poets and thought I would share them here:

"If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire ever can warm me I know that is poetry. If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry." Emily Dickinson

"Poetry is truth seen with passion." Yeats

Poetry - Howl


Lovelorn werewolves howl
As a comet glides unhindered
Across the moon.

Poetry - Spectres On Station Road

I've taken up the Writers Digest Poetic Form Challenge and written the following lune:

Spectres On Station Road

Beneath a pale
moon cold indistinct forms rove
before my eyes.


As a free verse poet and one that just lets the words spill onto the page this was a challenge.
