The International year of poetry: 2009!

Many have forgotten that once upon a time - poets were in the role of oracles - we still are - we have just forgotten - while reading through old poetry by some of those poets that never forgot their role and talked with the voice of reason - it is easy to spot this element of forth sight and future gazing - as our world will spin into even further turmoil and chaos - what better then find the simple tranquil voice within the worlds? the Voice within that empty space that speaks to us. Let us write - celebrate - and nurture the words of hope and rebellion against all odds.

who wrote the poem? Very nice. I like the entire layout with the animated graphic on top. Matter of fact let me go steal me one.

the poem is by me and the graphic on top is made by the italian artist Maurizio di Bona - we worked together at creating the spit image character of me called Joy B and have used it for poetry comics:)
