Dare boldly

A blog by Louise Gallagher

A Poetry Affair

I started a blog on July 25 called… Make Peace Happen. The intent was to write a poem a day about peace, except, I didn’t write a poem about peace everyday. In fact, I didn’t write a poem a day.

So… I’ve decided to shift the focus from just writing a poem about peace, to writing a poem a day about anything that calls to my heart.

I want to inspire myself to keep writing poetry, to express myself through poetic verse — and this is the best way I know how.

So if you’d like to follow along — the poems can be found by clicking on this link — A Poetry Affair

and… here’s a sample. I wrote this poem based on a photo I took on one of walks with Ellie, the wonder pooch.

  5. Oh this is wonderful – the colours and the way you’ve played with the words. I’d actually love to do a post that begins with this one and then continues with Heart Vision. I’ve really enjoyed both of these poems!

  6. Thank you! Just popped back to your blog and considered the words Dare Boldly, Live Bravely… and “fearless living”. I think you might enjoy a short post that I did in April so this is a special invite to visit 🙂 It’s at: https://exploringcolour.wordpress.com/2019/04/29/feathers-arent-always-fragile/
