There is a power in poetry that takes us to places deeper and more prophetic than do other genres. My poetry intertwines abstractions and issues focused on the philosophy of mind and life with creative, metaphorical, imaginative language. The writing of these poems has been integral to my growth as an individual, in identity, voice and world views..
Study the science of art.
Study the art of science.
Develop your senses
—especially learn how to see.
Realize that everything
connects to everything else.
~ Leonardo Da Vinci
poetry with philosophy as art with science
Poetry provides the richest and most concrete expression of spiritual freedom. Hegel writes of the power of poetry as holding the potential to discover through more concentrated inwardness and as actionable in space and time.
Poetry rises from the heart in the creation of wisdom through imaginative contemplation. Einstein utilized the imagination in the creation of alternative ways of thinking with direct links to the roots of intelligence and human evolution. Intuition, thought experiments and meditation were strategies grappling with abstractions and issues including the mind, the universe the soul and relationships.
Each of us need a strong voice and identity established with solid core values, world views and intentional, creative attitudes. Through both poetic and philosophical contemplations I have empowered and witnessed holistic transformations.
