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.

  1. 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!
