Poetry

I’ve been delving back into my poetry writing again lately. Such an amazing form of release. I’ve never really shared it before… except for with my besties and some members of my family. But there is always a first time and now feels about right for popping my poetry-sharing-to-a-wider-audience-cherry.

Mountain Top

Tattoos

And

Low riders

Empty Rock stars

Seagulls

Pigeons

White bread folk

At their finest

I don’t often

Venture

Down from

The mountain

Top

But when I

Do

I am reminded

Why

I

Don’t

…………………………………………………………………….

Taking a photo

There’s a penis

between us

seems to always

get a smile

Shooting from the hip

with the aim

of getting that

“money shot”

So long as my face

is at the right angle

please hide

my double chin

As I would like to appear as I am not

If you know what I mean

Soul Sisters

Soul sisters

twin fins

swimming

in the same current

you and i

we get each other

and for that

i am always grateful

the knowledge

of you

makes swimming

these turbulent waters

seem all the

more

grace filled

graceful

thank you

…………………………………………………………………

That is all for now folks. Enjoy. And thank you.

Do not lose heart. We were made for these times. – Clarissa Pinkola Estes

It’s Been A While…..

It’s been a while since my last blog. Ages in fact. There are so many things to write about yet I am struggling to find [make] the time. I am also thinking about trying to keep this blog somewhat consistent in it’s content. There I go again, thinking about defining something, controlling it’s outcome, stifling it so to speak. Why?  ‘Cos that’s what we do…. well, that’s what I do, or think about doing. “My blog is about such and such and ONLY such and such”. But that doesn’t sit with me.

I will allow myself one definition, in a broad sense, it is about me. My life, my experiences, my take on things, my ramblings to and at the world. Me in all of my glory and dysfunction. In all my learning – mistakes and growth. All of this written about with grace. Because we can all benefit from reading about others and their take on things.

We are not our best intentions. We are what we do. – Amy Dickinson [The Mighty Queens of Freeville]

The above quote came out of a book I picked up at the library for 50 cents. It had been sitting on the book self at home for at least a couple of months before I picked it up the other day, drawn to it for some unknown reason. I now know that the above quote was the reason. I love books and how they find you. This is also why I love writing and the instant gratification that is blogging.

From here on in, I will write about WHATEVER tickles my fancy, for myself mostly, but also for you. Sharing is caring after all.

And I will aim to do so weekly.
