How often do you read a poem and wonder : What was the author trying to convey? What feeling did he want to leave me with? What was the purpose or origin behind the words? I think a good poet never leaves those questions unanswered. For example, it is fine to write a poem about the gum on your loafer as a reflection on how sticky it is to tread through life. However, the real meaning is all to often lost in poor translation by the author. All the reader takes away is that the author is tired of stepping in gum.
Of course, we are all going to take away a little something different away from every poem, but when that last word is read, then the reader should feel something and have a clear sense of purpose. No one seems to leave me with that clarity like my friend, Bullwinkle Muse. He is not only a wordsmith…..he is an artist when it comes to giving words a purpose and feeling.
