Emeritus professor, psychotherapist, prosaic and creative writer and poet. SENSATIONS OF POETRY (What is poetry?) Poetry drifts like sailboats on calm oceans and visions from sweet notions. Poetry feels like brand-irons on cattle pelts and throbbing from blister welts. Poetry looks like snowflakes on fall flowers and rebirth from spring showers. Poetry smells like fragrance on fresh bodies and bouquets from hot toddies. Poetry tastes like redwine on parched palates and essence from green shallots. Poetry sounds like hailstones on flute windows and silence from loud rainbows. (meter: 11 and 7) © Wallace Dean LaBenne still here on planet Earth.
