It was suggested to let people know more about me, the writer, the poet.
My intention is to express clearly, the motivation, that motivates the writing, that’s often called poetry, that comes out of me.
I started writing at 16.
I do not remember all of my writings, but I remember that one, the first one. I believe it was the beginning of something.
Something very healing.
My first poem was this:
Sometimes, when I walk
I feel like I could talk to it
And it could talk to me.
I didn’t realize it at the time but this was my first spiritually inspired poem.
Then, very sporadically, I penned about 60-80 other poems. Often not inspired. Mostly without Spirit or flow.
Unlike that one, most had some type of rhyme and a very strong influence of ego. Trying… Forcing…
Now, I do not try. I do not force.
And more of my writings, poems really, are without rhyming. I guess I let go of thinking they needed to rhyme.
Like Longfellow or Poe.
Many of my first writings, what I call ‘Divinely Guided’ poems, another set of writings, were full of angst and questioning.
Questioning Who I Was.
At some point, I realized I was not writing poetry. I was Allowing the writing to flow through me, onto the paper, appearing as poems. It was really my learning, My Inner Wisdom, teaching me, reminding me really, of Who I Was… TRUTH!
So I am grateful. Grateful to allow the learning, the healing in the words that flow to and through me.
And I offer up all the blocks. Just all. To God.
Because I know the Truth. Because of my writings.
I AM a Divine child of God and all that my Mother/Father God has is mine.
I am remembering who I AM through the poems, through the writings, through Life.
And I share all of the Truth that flows to me. All the Truth I AM and You Are. I share it all.
Appearing as poems, appearing as insights, appearing as words, I share it all.
So I say to Life, to Love, to the Poems, to the Inner Wisdom, and you…
“Thank You. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You.”
I receive the inspirations, in Love. And I share, as they were shared to me, in Love.
Because in Truth, we are One.
So live your gift as I live mine.
And if you see no particular gift within you… Just Live…
And choose Love to the best of your ability.
And you will be living your Gift.
