Remind me today who I am

after the storm has passed-

for I have forgotten

and lost my way, fog has

clouded  my path. More

For My Brethren

I have been very busy “offline”. I have been writing, revising, gathering, and compiling. I’ve been reading, learning, stretching myself in ways I never imagined. I also feel I have been neglecting some of my longtime, faithful readers – so today before I rush out the door to share my latest poetry with our local writers’ group, I decided to open a journal (this one from January/February) and randomly share a previously unpublished page…which might possibly pass as a poem. Or not…you be the judge.

Either way, nothing will stop my pen from scrawling out words disguised as poetry, or the joy I derive thereof!

Combining National Poetry Month and A spontaneous Random Journal Day moment I give you one,  For My Brethren…and I hope it blesses all who do read. Unedited, from the page. Crazy I am, I know- but I hope you see the seed in it for your own poetry garden! Don’t fear the pen and page…plant a seed or two today.

Your Life Is Poetry #NPM17

I am pretty excited that it is April 1 and that is no joke! Let the games begin, or more accurately, let the poetry flow. Because if you are a poet, a wanna-be-poet, a writer who wants to work their writerly  muscles in new ways, or someone who loves poetry, this is a magical month for you. It’s National Poetry Month and National Poetry Writing Month and let me tell you why you want to know.

 

First, a confession…

There is a song playing in my ears,

sounds like this-

nobody cares, nobody cares.

The Pen Reclaimed

It’s National Poetry Month, and I have made some decisions regarding the direction of my writing as reflected in my reclaimed pen.

My message to you…fight the good fight, fellow pen-holders. Write as if your life depends on it…

For some of us, it is not about recognition, acknowledgment or acceptance. It is for life itself we write.

I write for life. I write to open the eyes, arouse the soul. Not least of all, starting with my own.

This is my revelation, this is my truth.

 

For what purpose or whom do you write?
