Members of the BridgePoint at Los Altos poetry group, from left, Anita Holzberg, Fidel Soria-Gaytan, Wayne Douglass and Lili Crellin, gather to share their poetic musings.
“‘Poetry is like standing on the edge of a lake on a moonlit night and the light of the moon is always pointing straight at you,’” Fidel Soria-Gaytan read, quoting poet Billy Collins. “Does anybody relate to that?”
Anita Holzberg said that if you’re inspired, the light of the moon is always pointing straight at you. Soria-Gaytan related it to the experience of writing a poem: “When I start writing, it’s a moment just for me and what I’m thinking. Like he said, there’s a light pointing straight at you. That’s how I feel when I’m writing poetry.”
