Hello Poetry Lovers! Where has Summer gone? The days seem to be racing by far faster than normal, and my poetry has been suffering because of it. Sometimes, the ideas aren’t there, as your mind is racing with everything else that needs to get done, but you need to make it a priority. I need to make it a priority. Because, it is a priority. Nobody can write the way you do, so make sure you don’t deprive the world of what only you can share. Sometimes, I find a prompt helps get me going, get the juices flowing, though when I get asked if I could write a poem for a person’s birthday, a child’s birth, an anniversary, a passing, I don’t always have control of what comes out.
A co-worker of mine recently announced that his wife is pregnant, and as a part of the baby shower gift, I was asked to write a poem to add to the card. This may not be what anyone was hoping for, but it feels honest and right to me. Keep on writing, and I hope the days get back to normal speed for all of us!
