Tune-In Friday ... Pardon the Interruption

Tune-In Friday goes on hiatus during National Poetry Month.

What better way to begin than with the artist...Pablo Neruda? This poem speaks to the beginning of poetry for him.

and something ignited in my soul

and something ignited in my soul

fever or forgotten wings

and I went my own way

deciphering that burning fire

and I wrote the first bare line,

pure foolishness

pure wisdom,

of one who knows nothing

and suddenly I saw the heavens

unfasten and open

~~Pablo Neruda

National Poetry Month - 2010

Sigh. I sooo love Neruda. I'll never forget the first time I found him years ago. I was reading some poetry by Erica Jong and she wrote an Ode to him. It was love at first sight!! By the way, if you haven't read Jong's poetry, here's some of it on her site:

Great post! Blessings!!!

Even though I do love music more than poetry, this is very nice.

I look forward to seeing what else you treat us to this month!
