Personal Statement:
Sound, well-written, meaningful poetry makes every word count. There can be no waste, for the world of literature, published and amateur, abounds with much froth and little substance. Really good poetry, I feel! It is visceral and scant and so damned elusive, yet so soulishly refreshing, and even redeeming. My most sublime intimate encounters (which our present culture is decadently drowning in) , somehow pale next to a finished work that stands in excellent regard. My mind and heart are best freed with the penning of well-put wordings, again, precious and rare. If I can but now and then capture this realm, plain and simple, but no less powerful and endearing, then my craft inches forward, and, so, satisfied, smile a sigh ;) My deepest regards to the poetic community! Yippy Skippily Yours ;))) E. Serof
