Like dreams, like myths, poems exist at the margin of what is say-able. Each is the darling progeny, the fanciful creation of the Uncreated. Each has been granted license to depart from the consensual fiction we think of as "reality" in order to point to a deeper truth.

Like dreams and myths, poems are emissaries - still cloaked in the mist between worlds, between a literal history, and what is freshly arising from Mystery. If myths are collective dreams, then poems are dreams that have learned how to fly.
