1.           What role does instinct have in writing poetry

 

- Ill talk about the role instinct plays in my poetry. To some poets, it plays a little role or almost no role at all. For me, instinct plays a major role that I dont see how I can write poetry without it. Of course, I can write a poem at will by using my writing skills and knowledge of rhythm and experience in toying with words. But this poem will never be close to my heart and I will not include it in any of my collection because it lacks this poetic instinct that gives poetry fluidity, spontaneity, and its natural essence. Sometimes, I write what I dont understand at the moment of writing. It only makes sense to me later when it transpires in reality. I have a poem called Prophet of the Poets in my latest collection In the Quiet of the Night. The poem angered one of my readers because he couldnt see the connection between poetry and prophecy. In my viewpoint, prophetic instinct and poetic inspiration are both integral parts of my poetry.
