To know poetry…

Poetry

“If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can warm me, I know that is poetry. If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry. These are the only ways I know it. Is there any other way?” -Emily Dickinson

    What does she call the other stuff that did not make her feel so cold and wounded? Makes me kind of rethink what poetry is for me. Hmm. As a matter of fact I have just written a poem just about that. You can see it when you get the chance. :)
