Everything But Beauty

(if you are viewing this via email, the website has a recording of this poem and commentary; click the title above)


I was trying to articulate what drives me to write poetry. Since I have also climbed mountains, I am accustomed to answering for strange obsessions.

Poetry is not my creation of beauty, but my experience of beauty.
