Poetry is a creative outlet for me to express myself, to open up my emotions and feelings for the world to see. While reading my poems I hope you are able to take something away from them that touches you, speaks to you, identifies with you, or even emotionally evokes something in you. I want you to make your own opinions on the work.
Any art to me is interpretive and ultimately means its own thing to each person. It’s not for me to tell you what you should get out of a piece. If it’s not clear, then I as the artist did not convey my idea to its clearest potential. Also, many of my poems, I think, are more abstract with meanings hidden away or just random thoughts and it’s okay to draw your own conclusions. I’m always open for discussions and willing to tell you where my mind was at when I wrote a poem. And I would love to hear your feedback on what any of my poem brings to you. But for me, the most important thing is that you are able to take something away with you because a poem has touched you in some way. How and why? Those are your reasons to have.
Hi. I really enjoy reading your poems. Just want to let you know I appreciate it. Thanks.
Thank you! That makes my day. Thank you for taking the time to read through. I hope to start posting again next month, once work slows down.
Nice words and I like your poetry as well. I also really like that picture of the moon! 🙂
Thank you. I appreciate you following me and I love getting feed back from my fellow poets. Make me feel like a part of the community.
The moon is a huge muse for me and I felt it should be on the site.
As it is for me as well! 🙂
Good Morning! I have enjoyed what I have seen of your blog and look forward to exploring more, but I just wanted to take this time to let you know I nominated you for “The Versatile Blogger Award” the criteria can be found here: http://crissybwell.wordpress.com/2013/08/06/the-versatile-blogger-award/ if you want to accept. Congrats and have a great day!!!
Hello Crissy, Thank you so much for your nomination! I really appreciate you following my blog and am happy you are enjoying what I have published so far. I need to give a lot of thought to accepting the nomination for “The Versatile Blogger Award,” some of the criteria is in contrast to the direction I have laid out for my blog. Either way, I am honored that you have selected me. Thank you!
You are very welcome and there is no pressure to accept, just think on it and again congrats! 🙂
It seems we have similar thoughts on the matter. I have to posts you might enjoy one is about reading poetry and the other about poetry as art.
