Poet Lady Katz: new forum reply to Peace

New reply from Susan Katz

<p>Thank you for sharing this personal insight with me.  I would have liked to have seen an image for "controlling your mind" – such as "containing it between the covers of a book" or for "(in) surging thoughts" like "the tide engulfing the sand" – or "Worried" like "leaves tormented by the breeze."  We need to see, hear, taste, touch, smell the images that make a poem, a poem.  I very much like what you are saying and do believe you could turn this into a very fine poem, with some attention to the techniques that make poetry, poetry,  – Susan</p>

<p>When I can't control my mind, there is no peace that I can find.</p>
<p>With insurging thoughts, I am worried and my stomach is tied in knots.</p>
