Deep thoughts and midnight musings
« on: January 08, 2019, 11:29:27 AM »
Sometimes I have deep thoughts in the shower, or when I should be sleeping.

I thought about just adding them to the poetry thread (should I just put this kinda stuff there?) but in case you all want a space to put your deep thoughts, I made this new thread.

JR's deep thought of the day.... errr night:

When you write a love poem, you put your heart and soul into the page in the hopes that that one person will find it beautiful.  Some of us write poems to family, prose poetry to friends.... even a well crafted letter to a stranger can be a work of art.

That thoughtful limerick you scrawled in the wall of the toilet stall might be photographed and immortalized as a meme. Or maybe it's a joke that only lands with one or two people.  Art might have commercial success, or it might not. But so long as it finds an audience, it wasn't in vain. One person who smiles or cries or gasps when they read your work is enough to make it worth it. 

That's what I mean when I confess that deep inside I think of everything I write--a book, an essay, an article, or story--as a love poem.

I actually needed a boost today. So often, I feel that my daily efforts are a pebble dropped in a well and don’t make any sound; they may not have even landed. (Of course, I’m glad when they don’t summon drums in the deep, but that’s another story.)

So, my daily efforts are love poems to the universe.
