My wellspring in poetics

For me, poetry springs from quietude and meditation. I began to resonate with what I was reading and then started writing poems seriously only after I had taken up yoga and eventually moved to the ashram. My Quaker practice in the decades since has sustained the practice, even while working in chaotic newsrooms or dealing with passionate relationships.

If you’re “into” poetry, either as a poet or reader, what’s the prompting for your own interest?

 

One thought on “My wellspring in poetics

  1. Yes, I find meditation very peaceful and yoga energising. Also, the thoughts and the feel during meditation is very peaceful and out of the world at times.
    Surely, I think, meditation harbours creativity.
