All Scripture Is Poetry

All scripture is poetry. It follows, then, that the most printed and purchased books in the world are books of poetry. This fact is just something I wanted to mention, should anyone wonder if they should publish their own poems.

Do I think what I write is equivalent to scripture? Of course not. I just wish more people—religiously observant ones especially—would remember that all scripture was written by a human hand, and would perhaps become audience to contemporary poets. All poets are, indeed, artists working within a sacred tradition.
