When you require renewal, is there a particular poem or book that you return to? A particular author?
I’m probably a bad poet for saying/doing this, but I find that reading a novel and/or binge watching movies most brings out my poetry muse. Maybe it’s the word “renewal” that’s tricky here. I will read favourite poems to ground me or affirm my life, though I don’t consider that renewal. I need to leave poetry and escape to something else before I can return.
