What is the relationship between Judaism and/or Jewish culture and your poetry?

Since I live my life as a Lubavitcher, I feel that all my poetry is permeated with a sense of G-d, though it is more apparent in some poems than in others. In many poems, G-dliness is outright obvious whereas in others it is more subtle.
