“The poet existed among the cave men; he will exist among men of the atomic age, for he is an inherent part of man. The need for poetry… is a spiritual need, and it is through the grace of poetry that the divine spark lives forever in the human flint.”
— Saint-John Perse
There is a spiritual need for art, poetry, music, literature, etc. Dreamers and their dreams, creators and their creations, seekers and their insights, lovers and the acts which arise from love — these are the vessels of the divine spark of the human spirit.
