'I am a Writer'
and post notes and photos about your poem like Dear Heart- Wiishkobe Ode.
When I was a small child,
my life was filled with grief, sadness, and tragedy;
and in time my thoughts and words turned inward,
and I became fascinated with nature.
There were times I was found talking to flowers or trees,
and the past called to me from old crumbling buildings;
when I was a small child.
Written in my poems,
are experiences from my own personal twisted life;
oh, at the beginning words just fell onto white,
but later my writing style became more meaningful.
I have lingered long with form, rhyme, and syllables,
and have pondered the writings of the late great poets;
and wrote my poems.
Their writing inspires me,
but, I rebel like a wild vine growing in nature;
oh, I like my poems untidy and messy, uncontrolled,
perhaps I write non-metrical on purpose.
My poetry repeatedly tells a true story,
and each day I study the style of late great poets;
and I write and write.
At last I have found my Zen,
I can see quite clearly the entire map of my life;
with those past destinations so dark and scary,
but, some so lovely and wonderful.
I have the power to select where my mind wanders,
yet, would I change one single day of my life- NO
for it has made me a writer.
