Despite, or: Because of confusion

My 2nd Palindrome poem

Why is poetry magical
Written absorbingly such that
Wonder comes forth -BAM-
We are utterly consumed

Self-indulgently reading while
Questioning wordsmiths leaves
Broad-mindedness unchecked

Poets manipulate thoughts
Creativity thriving inspiring
Despite that ~


~ That despite
Inspiring thriving creativity
Thoughts manipulate poets

Unchecked broad-mindedness
Leaves wordsmiths questioning
While reading self-indulgently

Consumed utterly are we
-BAM- Forth comes wonder
That such absorbingly written 
Magical poetry is why

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!
