Dick used poetry regularly during his sessions. He quoted poetry sometimes at length, sometimes by others and sometimes his own. Dick sometimes introduced his own poetry as authored by the "poet laureate of Kansas". See also Anger & Mothers & Compassion
I remember one time when he did several minutes of the start of the Canterbury Tales in the old English pronunciation. His memory was incredible and many people think that he had a photographic mind. He did say that he got into hypnosis 45 years ago to improve his memory.
Dick talked about the need to move into the world of poetry and magic to let go of our left brain knowing, so we were open to change. I am grateful that Dick gave me a booklet of his poems and I share a few that he used in sessions.
