…ty can be terrifyingly uncomfortable, and the tendency is to hate whatever reminds us of that fact. Poetry shows us that life is inherently unpredictable, and rather than hating that fact, we can embrace it as a reminder of carpe diem instead. Poems often trigger connections in our brains between very unlikely things. We can let that unnerve us, or we can let that invigorate us.
Thanks for this very beautiful insight into poetry. I feel validated. Even if it is uncertainty, I guess, its fine :-)
