Principia Poetica / Obsidian Eagle

Principia Poetica

Poetry lacking piquancy is like a story without conflict: boring.

Prosody acts like a mirror, which reflects the soul of its reader
so the less that people understand themselves
the less they will understand this inner dimension of poetics.

The best poems touch upon powerful, universal themes
tapped from our collective unconscious;
themes that transcend these tautologies.

Some pieces are far greater than the sum of their words.

Whereas Poets are mere conduits,
trance-channelers reveling in ecstasy;
graced by a muse's embrace.
