Poets write on different things
Our hearts have many different strings
And that which plays them
Likes the different note that each one sings

I love reading different poets work. It used to be quite daunting and the inner critic would wonder loudly why I think I can write.
I think everyone has an inner poet, some give it a voice, some a tune, others like to paint or sculpt – poetry is more than words it is a feeling, a sensitivity.
Allowing yourself to dwell there for awhile everyday is a balm for the soul. Whether you share your thoughts or not (and I very often don’t) the home of poetry within is a special place which should be protected and nurtured.
Surely the world has enough memes and farce – let there be more authentic whispers from the soul released. Like flowers after rain and flocks of migrating birds, the words of the soul are wild, write yours down.
