I Read Your Letters

You write them, I’ll read them!

Joseph S from the Republic of Crimea wants to know:

1. What is the meaning of life?

2. Please tell  me about your philosophy in regards to writing poetry.

Letter to Erozeno: Joseph S

Thank you for your letter, Joseph S!

As for the meaning of life, “Death Before Disco” was a popular slogan in the late 1970s and I think it should merit consideration today. Seriously, Henry Miller said that love is the one thing we don’t give (or receive) enough. I agree that life is love. The quality of life is measured by how much love we give, and how much love we receive.

Writing poetry is the essence of beautiful failure. At some point in writing (as in life) we will fail. The key is to fail beautifully while striving gallantly. Poetry comes to life when we have the courage to pick-up the pen after a beautiful failure.

Peace and love always!

Have a question for Erozeno?

  1. Good luck to your Crimean correspondent. Eons and eons have passed since the first time the question was asked, and no satisfying answer has been suggested. Maybe a definition?
    “Life is what happens while you are making other plans”!
    (As for writing poetry, I pass. Prose is hard enough!)
    Take care
