pretty random from hashing out conflicts to expressions of love and devotion about people I love, God to attempts to describe epiphany moments.
poetry from Chaucer, Spencer, Shakespeare to Billy Collins. Histories. Theology. Meditations from Greg Boyle to Thich Nhat Hanh. Shakespeare criticism.
depends on the poet and poem. Some are easy and cast beautiful light on the everyday (billy collins); others attempt to define glory (Milton, Rilke) etc. etc.
I am a geezer with heart and soul; a lawyer with an English major still in my veins. Love art and poetry especially the kind that aims for the stars a la Milton explaining the ways of God to man, Rilke, Dostoyevsky, Goya. Audacity and tenderness...
