    I agree. 🙂 The poet definitely needs to keep that door to madness open. The hour of thought can come any time, just like a mad rush that makes it into a complete poem, the soul reflecting on it. Beautiful. Love the picture too!

    “…in keeping ajar the door that can lead to…”

    A pebble always poised the break the surface, our courage indeed lies in our willingness to face it and then pen it all – the joy and yes, the madness. You’ve captured this so well. Excellent write and photograph.
