Samuel Guest : part four

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.
