My Biography is Coming Soon...

My biography will be very limited for now.   Here , I can express myself in poetic form but in real life I much rather prefer to be far less forward  I am a 60 year old American citizen , born and raised in the glorious South! A heritage that I am very proud of and thank God for as it is a blessing indeed ~

Currently married to my beautiful young wife(Riza) a lovely filipina  lady and we have a fantastic 7 year old son, Justin ~

I have truly lived a very wild life as a younger man but now find myself finally very happily settled down for the duration of my life~

I decided to rest here and express myself with hopes that it may in some way help others, for I see here a very diverse  and fine gathering of poets, artists, and caring folks~

Quickly finding friends here that amaze me with such great talent~~

I invite any and all to comment on my writes and send me soup mail to discuss

Is Poetry A Healing Balm To Many Of Its Readers And Composers?

How Poetry Can Heal

Psychologists and writers understand the healing power of writing. Here's how.

April is National Poetry Month—perhaps a good time to review the positive aspects of reading and writing poems. Poetry is a genre of writing in which succinct, vivid, and intense language is given to feelings, images, and ideas. It is a snapshot written from the inside out. William Wordsworth defined poetry as “the spontaneous overflow of feelings; it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility…”

 

Typically, a poem has a distinct rhythm. Poetry can also share transformative moments or revelations. Regardless of the type of poem, poetry uses an economy of words; therefore, every word is important. The more specific the poem, the better it is. The best poetry inspires readers to reflect, dream, reminisce, observe, and fantasize. Poems are written in fragments, and each line should have a singular image and feeling.

 

Reading and writing poetry encourages a certain interconnectedness and helps establish a sense of community between oneself and others. In other words, poetry can help us feel as if we’re part of a larger picture and not just living in our isolated little world. We learn that other people have embarked on similar journeys and have similar feelings about where they’ve been and where they’re going.

 

As most writers and therapists know, writing and reading poetry can be a springboard for growth, healing, and transformation. When we read a good poem, we have the opportunity to be forever changed by the poet’s words and message. We tend to be most transformed by poems where the poet expresses emotions or feelings we might be experiencing ourselves. For the most part, poets help us see a slice of the world in a way we might not have in the past. Poetry also offers insights into both the human psyche and human behavior, and it’s a place where the imagination can roam free.

 

Writing poetry can be healing and transformative because poems reflect the voice of the soul. Writing poetry is also a way to nurture a mindfulness practice because when writing poems, we have the chance to unleash the unconscious mind. Sculpting our feelings and thoughts into a poem can take us on a journey where the conscious mind actually takes a little holiday. Writing poetry is a time to loosen up and allow the freedom of self-expression at a time when it is often needed the most.

 

Writing poetry allows us to tap into our authentic voices, which can lead to self-realization. It can also be a form of meditation because it encourages a sense of mindfulness and the ability to tap into what we’re feeling, seeing, and experiencing at the moment of writing. Henry David Thoreau once said that if we sit in a clearing long enough, the animals will come out of the woods and present themselves. Figuratively speaking, this also happens when we write poetry: all sorts of surprises can come to light.

****************************

Poetry has in many ways healed me. And truly such is a gift that other means were tried and had failed to do. Perhaps one may have not ever thought of it that way, yet such is the case. Why else would so many poets be so dedicated to it? Robert J. Lindley, 1-22-2020

I started writing poetry as an outlet by which to heal, and I've had many people tell me that my poetry has helped THEM to do the same, so I am a strong proponent of this idea. Well-said, my friend!

Writing has tremendous therapeutic value for me. I do not write with the thought of an audience; I write to make sense of the world and to process. I am most productive and creative when I am struggling; writing helps me survive.

An interesting and informative blog, Robert. I like the thought of "Writing poetry allows us to tap into our authentic voices, which can lead to self-realization". I wish to believe that my poetry comes from my authentic voice, and I do try to convey my inner feelings. I suppose this stems from the fact that most of the sonnets I've written and have posted on PS are based on my biography which in itself was much of "a healing balm" and "self-realization". With poetry I can convey the feelings and emotions a lot better than with prose text. T.J

A very interesting article Robert, I do find it relaxing both writing and reading other poets work. We only have to look around us, nature provides so much inspiration, the list is endless. As does mankind, his triumphs and weaknesses, even disasters can provide inspiration. We have at our disposal an infinite treasure trove of subject matter. We just have to let our poetic juices flow. Tom

Robert, very interesting blog, for me poetry was always been a healer, " a healing balm" as the blog states, I think sometimes it is easier to write feelings and emotions in a poem than to speak them, I have been doing exactly that since I was a little girl, I recall when my childhood cat died, and I was devastated. I wrote a whole story about how she came to me, the things we did together, her funny habits, and about her death, and how I imaged her in God's loving arms . A poem "is a snapshot written from the inside out" _Constance

I myself admit that to me poetry is medicine for the soul. A partial counter to the ills of the world and a pleasure to be immersed within. Having now done so for over 50 years, it is a bit like breathing-- except when dark clouds form that prevent its creation.
