Poetic Moments

"Wouldn't it be better to turn life into poetry rather than to make poetry from life? And cannot poetry have as its primary objective, rather than the creation of poems, the creation of poetic moments?"
~ Octavio Paz

Ars Poetica

Between what I see and what I say
Between what I say and what I keep silent
Between what I keep silent and what I dream
Between what I dream and what I forget:

~ Octavio Paz

Didn't you suggest that you might start painting?
