Why do you feel that poetry is relevant at this particular time?
In the planetary evolutionary journey, there comes a point when a particular stage, or time period, has run its course. It is the equivalent of a rose that has fully flowered and is getting ready to shed its leaves. Life on Earth seems to lose its luster. A feeling of sad satiety settled over humanity, and a divine discontent creates a yearning for what lies beyond.
We are experiencing this stage of feeling over-saturated with information and overburdened by the task of thriving in a deteriorating society. There are two ways that we can be reminded of the preciousness of life: through catastrophe, or the much preferred way of changing perspective – to the poetic perspective.
