A few weeks ago I got a Magnetic Poetry Kit which I thought would be great to use in times of writer’s block… I don’t really think it’s good to project your own voice through poetry but it’s so fun to get inspiration from and to just do for fun. The words are just there to take, there are no hours of agonizing over what word you mean but can’t seem to find…
Here are a few I did:
our life is summer love
in a dream of milky smears of rain water
beneath a sweet honey sun
and a rose sky.
these days could trudge through clouds of rain
and my feet can beat steadily on the ground
but I can never outrun my shadow.
you are swirling in whispers
of eloquent language
but I am here with raw words
glistening on my skin.
