What poets changed the way you thought about writing?
Rumi was the first poet that I fell in love with. I thought that poetry was a waste of time until his words moved me. From there, I wen ton to read Mary Oliver, Ono No Komachi, and Pablo Neruda who taught me a lot about love, and loving life. There are also a slew of modern poets like Rebecca Salazar and R.R. Noall who astound me.
