Explosive Poetry quotes by Rana Dasgupta
#2. No Matter What
No matter what the world claims,
its wisdom always growing, so it's said,
some things don't alter with time:
the first kiss is a good example,
and the flighty sweetness of rhyme.
No matter what the world preaches
spring unfolds in its appointed time,
the violets open and the roses,
snow in its hour builds its shining curves,
there's the laughter of children at play,
and the wholesome sweetness of rhyme.
No matter what the world does,
some things don't alter with time.
The first kiss, the first death.
The sorrowful sweetness of rhyme. - Author: Mary Oliver
Explosive Poetry quotes by Mary Oliver
#3. Free Shoes

The pairs of shoes stand in rows,
polished and jet, like coffins for small pets,
lined with off-white. Evacuated children
sit in rows eyeing the pairs, child after
child after child, no parents
anywhere near. When it's their turn,
they get a pair of new shoes
and the old ones are taken away.

Of course it is kind of the nice people
to give them the shoes. Of course it is better
to be here in the country, not there where the buildings
explode and hurl down pieces of children.
Of course, of course. This life that has been
given them like a task! This life, this
black bright narrow unbroken-in shoe. - Author: Sharon Olds
Explosive Poetry quotes by Sharon Olds

For years
they told you to

Now they open the door

Where do you go
with no one
to show you
the way? - Author: Keelie Breanna
Explosive Poetry quotes by Keelie Breanna
#6. I think about all the people who have created something that lives after them - works of art, plays, music, films, literature, poetry that will be read, seen, performed, and heard for the rest of time.

#11. This is what magic is.

Explosive Poetry quotes by Terence McKenna
#12. I'm not simple. Loving me will never be easy. I bring every travesty that's rocked me- with me, to the table. I won't pretend to be something I'm not, and I don't expect you to be blemish free either. That's much too boring of an existence. A past means you've lived, you've prevailed. My ears are open. My heart is accepting. I want to know how you are. I want to know what made you... and I want to feel free to share the 'not so pretty' parts of me, with you. - Author: Alfa Holden
Explosive Poetry quotes by Alfa Holden
#13. The touch of
your fingers
grazing mine
delicate as
a single drop of wine
in a crystal goblet.
Rolling it round,

The words
in the air
and melt.

Your palm
my cheek,
light as
a snowflake. - Author: Eve Merriam
Explosive Poetry quotes by Eve Merriam

The friend I'd dare to choose
to stand by me each day
would be a dragon fierce enough
to scare the world away. - Author: Richelle E. Goodrich
Explosive Poetry quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich

Before this moment I had divined but had never known with such positiveness that the world is extremely large and that suffering and toil are the companions and fellow warriors not only of Cretan, but of every man ... that by means of poetry all this suffering and effort could be transformed into dream; no matter how much of the ephemeral existed, poetry could immortalize it by turning it into song. - Author: Nikos Kazantzakis

Explosive Poetry quotes by Jean Cocteau
(a poem of light for national poetry day)

And the world will be born again
in circles of steaming breath
and beams of light
as each one of us directs
our inner eye
upon its name.

Hear the cry of wings,
the sigh of leaves and grass,
smell the new sweet mist rising
as the pathway is cleared at last.

Stones stand ready -
they have known
since ages and ages ago
that they were not alone.

Water carries the planet's energy
into skies and down
to earth and bones.

The cold parts steadily
as we come together,
bodies and hearts warm,
hands tingling.
We are silent
but our eyes are singing.

We look, we feel, we know,
we trust each other's souls,
we have no need to speak.
Not now, but later,
when the time is right,
the name will ring
within the iron core
of each other's listening -
and the very earth's being.

Every creature, every plant,
will hear it calling,
tolling like a bell -
a sound we've always felt
but never dared to hope
to hear reverberating -
true at last, at every level
of existence.

The poets come together
to open the intimate centre.
in life and air -
breathe the light itself,
for these are the energies
and rhythms that we need
to see, to touch, to reach,
t - Author: Jay Woodman
Explosive Poetry quotes by Jay Woodman
#39. I'm still trying
to find the parts of me
I left hidden
between pages
of a story I never
wanted to forget,
but you were always
in the last place
I looked. - Author: Wilder Poetry
Explosive Poetry quotes by Wilder Poetry
#40. I am Cassandra - she who, without asking,
understood it all and still came to her fate,
I, Cassandra, full of visions,
who sees her own death without turning away,
and hears in the night the day that follows. - Author: Gabriela Mistral
Explosive Poetry quotes by Gabriela Mistral
#41. Surprised by joy- impatient as the Wind
I turned to share the transport
Oh! with whom
But thee, deep buried in the silent tomb,
That spot which no vicissitude can find?
Love, faithful love, recalled thee to my mind
But how could I forget thee? Through what power,
Even for the least division of an hour,
Have I been so beguiled as to be blind
To my most grievous loss?
That thought's return
Was the worst pang that sorrow ever bore,
Save one, one only, when I stood forlorn,
Knowing my heart's best treasure was no more;
That neither present time, nor years unborn
Could to my sight that heavenly face restore. - Author: William Wordsworth
Explosive Poetry quotes by William Wordsworth

And my pen makes her into poetry! - Author: Avijeet Das
Explosive Poetry quotes by Avijeet Das
#45. The mind in creation is as a fading coal, which some invisible influence, like an inconstant wind, awakens to transitory brightness; this power arises from within ... could this influence be durable in its original purity and force, it is impossible to predict the greatness of the result; but when composition begins, inspiration is already on the decline; and the most glorious poetry that has been communicated to the world is probably a feeble shadow of the original conceptions of the poet. - Author: Percy Bysshe Shelley
Explosive Poetry quotes by Percy Bysshe Shelley
#46. Sing your life; any fool can think of words that rhyme. - Author: Morrissey
Explosive Poetry quotes by Morrissey
