And so, I suggest to those readers who may be interested, write! Scribble something on the back of an envelope. Play around with word rhymes on your computer. And for those who may be really enthusiastic, form a poetry group. Just as Anderson has produced a number of extraordinary singers and athletes, I believe our poets are out there, too, waiting to be read, needing to be heard.
Tell you what. If you send your poem to me at email@example.com, I’d be willing to include it in a future column assuming, of course, it passes muster with THB editors. I say let’s get in touch. I mean with each other, yes, but more important, let’s get in touch with the truth. Writing poetry is one way of doing just that.
Have a nice day!
