This is my first experience with blogging and I am very very excited to write and share my thoughts and ideas with whomever will take the time and join me. I am in the middle of deciding what kind of blog I want to create, I am currently looking for a theme or subject to cover regularly. So bear with me in this crazy process as I have many ideas and just need to narrow things down…
I love to write poetry and I am in the middle of writing a couple of stories as well. I will definitely share my poems freely here. So that is a start. My goal is to eventually become a published writer. Lofty some may say, but may be not, as writing is very natural to me. I have been writing poetry since I can remember. My 1st poem at the tender age of 7 was for my mother. Whom was a single parent at the time. Writing this poem had a profound affect on me and has helped me realize that writing is a wonderful coping mechanism and outlet for so many things. My mother has continuously supported such creative outlets as I grew up. I am extremely thankful that I have this skill and I am glad to have the freedom and choice to share or to keep to it to myself. Now is a time for me to share. I am open to constructive criticism, and will not respond to negative or rude comments. I am a sensitive soul and wish to be treated as such.
Here it is that 1st poem I wrote in 1980.
The sky is blue;
The sky is grey;
The sky is like that every day;
We might fight one night;
But we will still love.
