Observations: “Truth” & Poetry

Excellent thoughts on “truth” in poetry. I attended this conference too. Very worthwhile for a hands-on poetry experience.

    1. I think this goes for every kind of writing. Mine is all based on an event, or a feeling. Then, it’s necessary for the poem to enter its own world and live there. My mantra is “Poets take an incident and then they fib.” At this conference, the organizer always admonishes, “Tell one truth, one lie, and never tell anyone which is which.”
