The Poet cultivates a deep capacity to understand the heart, and he sincerely values the process of contemplation. As the Poet feels, dances, sings, and swims, he heals as he expands the heart through his simple, honest words.
The Poet is the archetype of consciousness, the one who absorbs all experience and reflects human being through his words. He fuses spirituality with sensuality to awaken us to our Being, circumscribed by the all-inclusive Universe and felt within the living human body. His loyalty to the species renders him in the likeness of a Sentinel, a watchman, a witness of Humankind. He is fully surrendered to the human condition and through his submission he discovers the entire living generation and speaks to us as an oracle and guide in despite of fear, death and ignorance. He knows life to the bone, and attends to all experience like a lover in pursuit of a dream.
