I agree with you 100%

Poetry is what makes us human.....It is the oldest known written communication. It separates us from the beasts, and gives us a unique place in the universe to call our own.

I think you approach poetry in a much similar way that I do and I have read some of your poems-I believe they are quite moving! Just wanted to let you know that your poetry is, in fact, 'connecting somewhere along the way.'

Sherry, I know what you mean about having difficulty translating feelings to the written word, especially doing it in an original way. I even wrote a poem, 'Foreign Language' to describe that feeling. I find the best way to deal with it is to not be in too much of a hurry to complete a poem. I often write down my initial thoughts and feelings, then come back to them later and work on forming them into a poem I like. Sometimes it takes a long time and lots of reworking until I'm satisfied that I've 'translated' what's inside to the parchment.
