A.E. Bayne: National Poetry Month in Fredericksburg

Front Porch Magazine
April 2013 (pg. 26)

When there are no words, there is always poetry.  You know what I mean.  When the literal fails us, the figurative remains. Images charged with emotion and forged from memory and experience fly onto the page with unbridled urgency.  Then the work begins – the weeding, the trimming, the selecting and tying of loose ends.  The poet’s toolbox is language, and the motivation is life.
