    'Poetry, it seems to me, raises the questions of margins and marginality in obvious ways … and yet poetry is central in terms of its contribution to language and thought. (Hecq 2005)

    'Liminality indicates a border, a line, and thus some style of crisis – some turn, or act of turning, of crossing from one place or state to another (Meads 2019: 5). It is the discovery of a limit, and simultaneously, realisation that the limit is not the end. There is always some further into and through which to step. What seems a wall is a skin is an interstice is warping, stretching, porous. Like the ‘/’ in the ‘im/possible’ and ‘both/and’, such lines are zones, spaces, gaps for opening and unfolding, sites for play and experimentation, for testing, dreaming, discovering. The liminal is thus imbued with potential: hitherto-unthought thoughts become articulable, letting new knowledges and ways of knowing come to be (Meads 2019: 5-6).'

No matter how many times I see these words, I never tire of them, and never fail to feel myself smile as I read them. They evoke thought of the mighty Teesta River, which courses through such diverse terrains, feeding and connecting many otherwise very different people and cultures. The river as symbol says so much about what poetry at its best can be, and of the reasons why it matters. In multiple senses, poetry flows, and allows us to flow. It flows both from and towards – from experiences, emotions, thoughts, situations, responses, and often other poems; and towards new insights, connections, possibilities, and actions, including actions of inspiring or creating more poems.'
