"i post this to remind myself..."
don't be so selfish like irresponsible poets with no social conscience who are writing for their own pleasure :/)
and allow me to use your post as a reminder how much i miss from the universal history of our universal culture
It is obviously easier to love and foster traditions that are there to preserve and promote such timely pursuits like beauty, romance, love, pain, wisdom. as i believe these havent changed since centuries, these are what we stay alive for, also today. poetry is one of these traditions, the evidence of life... a wonderful magnifier, that makes things grow in our memory and in our imagination when all what lies in our heart is there to encourage it. you dont rebel agains tradition: when you write poems it is your rebellion against being what you are.
