    My favorite poet, Anne Sexton

  • Julie M.

    Love? Be it man. Be it woman. It must be a wave you want to glide in on, give your body to it, give your laugh to it, give, when the gravelly sand takes you, your tears to the land. To love another is something like prayer and can’t be planned, you just fall into its arms because your belief undoes your disbelief. ~ "Admonitions To A Special Person" - Anne Sexton (click for the whole poem: http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/admonitions-to-a-special-person/)

  • Donna Pauley

    Anne Sexton: Busy, with an idea for a code, I write / signals hurrying from left to right, / or right to left, by obscure routes, / for my own reasons; taking a word like "writes" / down tiers of tries until its secret rites / make sense;or until, suddenly, RATS / can amazingly and funnily become STAR / and right to left that small star / is mine, for my own liking, to stare / its five lucky pins inside out, to store / forever kindly, as if it were a star / I touched and a miracle I really wrote
