Frequently the constraints imposed by poetic forms deliver words or phrases that reveal parts of our experience we had not even been aware of, let alone planned to express.It is this ability of poetry to perform what has been called 'divination'-revelation of the self to the self-that is my underlying theme. An approach that is both active and reflective: not just studying poetry but writing it too. For, as I hope you will discover, when the world becomes word we can learn to read ourselves in a new way.From line to rhyme and shape on the page, this accessible guide tackles the essential elements of poetry writing. With imaginative and inspiring exercises, Manjusvara provides a practical guide that illuminates the craft.Featuring Buddhist reflections on the writing process and considering issues such as influence, memory, and the relationship with prayer and ritual,The Poet's Way encourages reader to engage their own lives in their writing and unleash their creativity. Showing ultimately how poetry can reveal new aspects of readers' spiritual lives,The Poet's Way brings the mystery of poetry writing to light while retaining its vital magic.
