Hi. Like many things in life, both good and bad, The Unknownpoets.com was created by accident. My daughter interpolated Unknown for Occasional, purchased the domain name and here I am. The question is, who am I?
I am an Unknown who, like you, have something to say about what we say and think to and about each other. I have always fancied myself poetical and, even though I don’t know (m)any of you personally, I always thought of everyone as being the poet of their and others’ existence (spoiler alert—foreshadowing an entry here).
The very well known poet Percy Bysshe Shelley once penned, quite Romantically really, that poets were the unacknowledged legislators of the world, with unacknowledged being somewhat synonymous with unknown, which brings us to us and why I’m creating this (hopefully) progressive work in progress: to create a place where words and thought hold meaning; to create a place where the “Unknown”can call home and cull meaning and inspiration from their fellow “Unknowns.”
If the past few months have revealed anything about anything, it’s that we Poets/Unknowns truly ARE the world’s legislators. It’s just that we’ve neglected our daily duty doing what we thought was our daily duty. Now, the jig is up, the news is out and life has finally found us. We are responsible for the world in which we live and the thoughts, words, and actions that create it. Rather than pontificate (much) more, I will let my Opus of Hopeus I call Divine Birthright, do the job.
But, a thing or three more on this Unknown venture. I see the site as ultimately collaborative (with me being the Collaborator Enticer Ordinaire) and as a resource to the resources others, including myself, have used as guides and sound posts in developing their view of humanity and role in it. So, we will suggest sites, sounds and smells, provide links, perhaps pithy quotes, tasty recipes, tips on tipping and all matter of etceteras as we create and walk on this path to the Unknown……
We hope you enjoy your visit and come back to the Unknown often... Peace
