I don't believe poetry is or should be 'self-expression' in any naïve, personal sense. Rather I see it as a lens through which the human universe can see itself, an aural focussing through which human languages can hear themselves." Margaret Atwood, quoted in Rosemary Sullivan's The Red Shoes.
It’s the adventure of making changes and changing ourselves which makes worthwhile this flicker in the history of the universe that we are, this fleeting warmth between two glaciers.
Not the ones speaking the same language,
but the ones sharing the same feeling understand each other.
