It’s National Poetry Month! As a poet (well words sort of tumble out of me and dance around in my head anyway) and a Journal Keeper, I offer you my first poem this month…in honor of all poets great and small.
I believe poetry is for the common folks, like me…not just the literary elite. Poetry is my go to medium for creativity, counsel, psychological well-being, clarity, focus and inspiration.
Writing poetry clears my head, gives me strength, encourages my enthusiasm, and keeps me sane.
I may be no Frost, Collins, or Plath but Poetry is my default.
I Want To Fly Away
I want to fly away
Gazing upward though
to the skies
Lids like shade
Arms like wings
what is needed
will be provided…
I want to fly away.
