'In poetry, you must love the words, the ideas
and the images and rhythms with all your capacity
to love anything at all'

Wallace Stevens

I like to write using words that have various meanings...that way the reader is free to interpret
as he or she chooses...to participate, to apply/discern the textures/images/ideas via personal involvement....
I also enjoy being somewhat of a neologist....fun for me, and, I hope, for you.....
as to parts of speech, well, they seem to morph, to renegotiate delineations...to play, creating rhythms, sounds and colors as they go.....

Thank you, dear poets, for perusing my efforts....I've much to learn. There are those here that have generously made valuable information available....I am most appreciative...

Love, D.

I've read 10-12 of them. Delicious. Like a cherry tart. She's (he's?) a real pip!

I will chide Mr. Barber (most respectfully) for misspelling Delilah's last name. I don't believe that's how she intended to spell it. However, I will heartily echo his opinion. Delilah is a wise Seeker, whose stream of consciousness meanders gently and gracefully from insight to insight; changing the reader, always for the better. Her work should be read with a wry smile. And if you don't have one when you start, you will before you finish.
