Do you know how poetry started? I always think that it started when a cave boy came running back to the cave, through the tall grass, shouting as he ran, “Wolf, wolf,” and there was no wolf. His baboon-like parents, great sticklers for the truth, gave him a hiding, no doubt, but poetry had been born – the tall story had been born in the tall grass.
~Vladimir Nabokov

    Not exactly a poem – more a distillation of the poems written about beauty: http://vivinfrance.wordpress.com/2012/04/24/my-most-beautiful-thing-24th-april-2012/

    Thank you for the Nabokov quote. More random thoughts than poem for me, a bit of a rant follows the thoughts. Ah, you know, some things get under my skin.
    solution or shame?

    A thought on bliss today. (And I’ve been catching up on the last couple of days.)
