Yes, a thousand times, yes. Poetry may even be the wellspring of language, the source, the aquifer of pure language from which we draw that life-sustaining sip.

Really loved reading this. I’ve saved and shared it as something I want to come back to when I need to lift my spirit to write poetry.

Thank you.
