If you follow my Instagram account you saw that I wrote a poem early this morning (technically yesterday morning now that I look at the clock). Here it is…as promised.

Friends, from a sleepless night, a poetic offering for you. From a dream I had while awake…which was real -but felt like a dream. Follow?  Well…let’s see!

I pray it blesses you, somehow.

I have just returned from a weekend Writers’ Conference here in New England. My mind is still racing and I am heading into a busy week…I am hoping to catch a bit more time to process the wealth of information, beauty and diverse voices  I experienced during this  event. Meantime, as always finding the way back into my own rhythm includes a bit of poetry. Poetry is my pathway to clarity,  focus, vision, and possibility. I  hope to be sharing more about that soon…I promise big news is on the horizon, and I can’t wait to share it with you! One small step for this writer…and for you, my faithful  readers and friends!

Meanwhile,  I pray this simple affirming words breathe freshness into your day. For those of you who follow my Instagram account, this is my response to the Spontaneous Journal Prompt I shared on August 16th. I wrote it this morning, but it is the ruminating question  on my mind as I consider my  current writing life.

Illation

 

When the world clamors loud, we can run to the honesty of nature and trust the quiet communication of a poem. Poetry, photographs, paintings and sculptures- all creative efforts  speak to us in a language all their own. Let’s listen.

A Poet Responds to a Painting

Recently I received some fabulous mail from a Canadian friend. It was chock full of the kind of ephemera we journaling types adore.  Canada is celebrating it’s 150th birthday this year but it seems I get the presents. She included a lovely Starbucks Canadian travel mug I have been toting back and forth on my out and about town excursions. One of the exquisite treasures I received was an artist post card. On it was a painting I felt incredibly drawn to, above the many lovely images sent. As I tipped it (taped it with washi tape) into my journal, I was inspired to write a poem.

Poetry continues to be a powerful pathway for me. I believe it is a pathway for  many things, connection, community, and conversation. Art offers the same  to all in its various forms. There is no limit to where the imagination can lead. I  find inspiration in both artwork and artist, so be sure and check out the artist whose work inspired the poem below:  Shannon Ford. I know you will find her work incredible to  see!
