Poetry

Sometimes poetry can capture an image or idea in ways that other forms of writing cannot. Consider playing with poetry and see what emerges.

To get inspired, take a walk in nature, notice what you see, and let words flow into your mind. Then pick some main images and shape them into whatever words give meaning to you.

One of my favorite poetry art forms is haiku, originally developed by the Japanese. Haiku is a short, three-line poem with five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second line, and five syllables in the third line. It often has a nature theme, intensely captures a moment in time, and often juxtaposes two very different images to create a sudden illumination.

    Again loved the poem.
    Tears cry pain, tears cry joy,; Release to gain clear sight. tkg

    Heart and Soul In Mind Set by Taveta K. Grant
    Into the darkest night I wander and low a light I see.
    It beckons my heart to flutter and no emotion to retreat.
    A yearning to fly forward, without a care or fear;
    With only a mind that’s open and begging to see and hear.

    Now, the veil has parted, … it’s now within me, …
    tis’ no longer a dream, … tis’ no longer sleep.

    So let imagination soar and heart in mind take leaps
    For Immortally, Love and Beauty are there for those who seek.
