Exploring the stylistic texts, images, and provocative meanings
of contemporary & classic cultural arts.
PLEASE NOTE: This post is a continuation of Voices of Poets on War and Peace started in the blog post titled: Angel of War and the Year 2022. The full text of the poem "Angel of War," from the book The River of Winged Dreams, is in included with the original post. Responses from different commenters have been included because nearly all are accomplished poets in their own right and what they shared go beyond reactions to a single poem to the kind of thoughtful meditations on the nature of war and peace many may find useful in light of Russia’s current invasion of Ukraine. Their words begin below the video. (To view original post with poem please click here.)
