What got me into poetry? Well, I cannot say a certain event or poet ever got me into poetry or writing for that matter. I remember even writing songs down as a young child. My older sister would help me type my handwritten stories onto an old typewriter. No laughing, ok since I am, I guess it’s allowed. I’m showing my age I guess. Lots of correcting back then.
As a teenager I used to carry notebooks with me. Oftentimes I would ask my friends for random words and I would have to create a poem or series of poems using all of them. I still have that notebook. Perhaps one of these days I will crack it open and see if there are any gems hidden inside.
Poetry for me is an outlet, a diary if you will. I never plan the words or the thoughts; they flow from me as I’ve said before. Humans are emotional beings, and sometimes there are people out there that can express those feeling and elicit them in others. I have even seen readers find deeper and/or other meanings to something I didn’t intend. But overall, the poem has the most meaning to the writer. It’s a cathartic cleansing of sorts, well at least for this poetess. I hope you enjoy this poem written with past June.
