Poetry Walking

If you cannot be a poet, be the poem.  ~David Carradine


Johnny Depp refers to Angelina Jolie as “poetry walking” during a post production interview while filming The Tourist and I love that image. Is he speaking of her body, her eyes, her scent? Maybe it’s the way she carries herself or how she speaks. Poetry walking has an understated sexuality to it as well as sensual imagery.

As a woman this makes me weak in the knees.

As a poet this inspires me.

What *is* poetry walking? I’ll spend a good part of November exploring that.

Writing prompt for my nablopomo sisters – if you are so inclined – what is poetry walking to you?

  1. Poetry walking is the movement of the waves slowly crashing against the rocks, the sun rising over the mountains, and a small child hand placed in your hand as you walk hand in hand. There are only a few ideas of poetry walking means to me.


  2. Like the Word that was made flesh and dwelt among us … we also are in God’s image. Our words are made flesh with which He fashions His poems to glorify Him.
