You didn’t make yourself a poet – you entered a situation in which there was poetry.”   —   Derek Walcott

(Apparently, I’ve avoided those situations for the majority of my life!  So much of poetry is alien to me, and if you can’t readily understand it, you can’t write it.  I did compose a haiku a few years back, and it got a nice amount of Likes.  So, I guess even the blind squirrel finds a nut, from time to time!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

One of the things the Empire taught:  that apart from citizenship, the synonymous inheritance of the citizenship was the literature.”   —   Derek Walcott

(Our very first Derek Walcott quotation, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  Ironically, the esteemed gentleman passed away only about three months ago.  It looks like he lived a very full and rewarding life though.  Good for him.  I drew a blank on his first name.  I wrote out all the unused consonants, and considered a few losing combinations, before my V-8 moment!  My son’s name is Derek.  Mama said there’d be days like this.  Be well and do well, friends.)   —   YUR
