After a period of some difficulty and hesitation, I picked up my poetry book project again, began again with a blank page, and progress has been made! The book will feature poems I’ve written throughout my life, ones I hope will encourage you or make you think or kindle in you an appreciation for creativity and the natural world. I will post a link to where it can be purchased when it is fresh and ready, most likely in the new year.
Whenever I’m about to share writing, I am reminded of a poem I read in a creative writing class in college which mentioned something like poets taking their poems out from under the bed and sharing their words with the world. If anyone knows the name of this poem, please do let me know!
This morning, I began thinking about how a poem is like a plum, small, delicious, and best enjoyed with patience and slowness.
Are there any projects you are working on or dreams that excite you these days?
