Still struggling to know my soul and express it in poetry
It is a great practice in “listening to the still, small voice of the Spirit.”
Sometimes I hear Whitman or Sandberg or Millay or Langston Hughes or Dylan Thomas or Ginsberg or dear sainted Angelou as they went to those same deep places.
Or Isaac Hayes writing "Try a Little Tenderness" or the rising Mississippi River anger of “Mannish Boy” by Muddy Waters rising from centuries of slavery and peonage.
