The Poetry Portal

Ami Ronnberg

In this image, the Japanese priest Kuya opens his mouth to recite a mantra and his words appear as a stream of visible Buddhas, as if suggesting that his words are creating a new reality, a way of seeing. We hope that you will be inspired to write a poem on the theme of Words for this installment of the Poetry Portal. In the process you will change our way of seeing, as poems also do. Please click here to read the poems from last time on Wings. We look forward to hearing from you. Please send your poems to by June 15, 2016.
