Blossoms of the Extraordinary

"I believe that this is what poetry demands of us: a willingness to savor mystery instead of stampeding toward certainty. When we pay careful attention to the potential of the extraordinary, its blossoms will burst through our ordinary, everyday lives."

from Writing the Life Poetic by Sage Cohen

I passed on that poem you posted recently, Refugee Blues, to my writing group.
