Why Write Poems or Why It Can Be Hard Not To

Updated on October 28, 2013

You know me as a Dane in Spain - but my real name is Dorte Holm Jensen.I have been writing poetry in my mother tongue, which is Danish, since I was 12 years old. I even published a collection of poems years back...but now finally - I am coming out of the "Poetry-Closet" in English.

Why Write Poems or Why It Can Be Hard Not To

A spring of truth

a river of unsolved mysteries

a stream of blurred images

pushing - expanding

bursting it’s way out

through the membrane of the soul

and transforms into words

A poor representation

a transformation

to the external world

which has its price

but is a necessary

almost involuntary

clarification process

which can not be stopped

      Thank you so much, Romeos, for enjoying my work and for "Sweet, Sweet Lady - which I loved.

      By the way, both versions of M(r)s Jensen are way to formel for me. I am just "Dorte". (Most likely because of my roots in the Danish culture, which is very laid back) :-)

      All the best to you and your "Sweet, Sweet Lady"!

      It is all of that which you say and much more M(r)s Jensen. I wrote a poem about it about three months ago, entitled, " Sweet, Sweet Lady." I enjoy reading your work - it's very honest, which is always a breath of fresh air.

      Best Wishes for a peaceful eventide,
