Listen to the Poets
At any given time in a civilized society, there are poets who see what is happening and give transcendent meaning to it. (For example, T.S. Eliot's, "The Wasteland" and Ginsberg's, "Howl")
But there are countless "minor" poets (like you) who give us spoonfuls of understanding of what is happening and how everything is connected.
Let's take some time to listen to them. Good poetry is like meditation. It can reset, refocus, rejuvenate the conscience. Give us a poem that has caused you to be still and to listen. Share with us your own poetry that has poured out from your conscience.
