    And what is health? what is the relation between poetry and health?
    So far my knowledge goes
    Health is matter, poetry is spirit my dear.
    Both are interlinked.
    See poetry as symbol of love affection and all goodness
    Love poetry as poetry loves you.
    You are to take care of your health
    Poetry is there to take care of you. okay. please reply. (Report) Reply

    I absolutely loved this poem. It made me smile, thinking of my joke that I am smoking for the cancer. Beautiful work darling.

    Blessed be
