Seven reasons to be cheerful about writing poems

You can create a private space where imagination can bloom- a place that remains private, even when you share it.

You can feel what you mean and express it, even though you might not dare to articulate it any other way.

You can find out what you didn’t know.

The un-ambiguous word can illuminate the inarticulate mood.

You can translate a sense of reality or unreality into something tangible.

You can reassemble your scattered worlds and talk to the dead.

You can catch and hold this sliding life.
