How to write a good song or poem
with Joe DiSabatino
What is it that makes a song or a poem memorable? Are there certain qualities that are present in all good songs and poems and can they be learned? The answer is Yes! The secret is learning how to side-step our “conventional mind” (the rose already painted, the rose ‘out there’) and leap into our “post-conventional” spontaneity (our emotional/imaginative response to the rose) which integrates our pre-conventional child-like wonder and adult aesthetic sensibilities. In this 2-hour workshop, we’ll study a few examples of poems and songs that do just that. We’ll also experiment with techniques for fast-tracking into our inner child artist where a rose is not a rose is not a rose but maybe a galaxy of blazing spiraling crimson flares that pull us into its black hole of infinite beauty as we spin screaming with delight into another dimension emerging as an incandescent soul-quark alive to endless quantum possibilities. That forgotten experience we had in our back garden at age 5, the one our teachers murdered when they told us a rose is a rose is a rose, period.
