“Poetry is just the evidence of life.
If your life is burning well,
poetry is just the ash.”

  1. Beautiful, sombre and .. comforting. Strange coincidence, I posted a poem called Ashes on the same date too – but about something else. Best wishes!

    I enjoyed the poem, no criticism.

  3. “Language allows us to reach out to people, to touch them with our innermost fears, hopes, disappointments, victories. To reach out to people we’ll never meet. It’s the greatest legacy you could ever leave your children or your loved ones: The history of how you felt.” ~ Simon Van Booy
