Hats Off! to Emmanuel Kane who contributed to the blog post "Why Does Poetry Matter?" on the Poetry Matters Project, Ltd. "Poetry matters because it captures remotest feelings and thoughts," Kane says. "It takes the mind and soul to a place where others fear to tread. Poetry allows us to be ourselves, to speak our mind, to laugh the healthiest laugh and cry the deepest cry. Poetry reveals who we are and how we want our space, our world, to be or become. As God’s creation, we speak and think and act poetically. Therefore we are poetry and poetry matters.” Kane is the author of Theaters of War (2006) and Growing Flames, Fury and Lavender (PRA Publishing, forthcoming).
