Poems and poetry...

"Poetry is the revelation of a feeling that the poet believes to be interior and personal which the reader recognizes as his own." ~Salvatore Quasimodo

I haven't much written anything related to this month's NaBloPoMo theme of 'Poem' and have also said that I don't really write poetry... that may not necessarily be all true. At Kripalu I was part of a ... writing group... we met up maybe once a week, focused on a theme, wrote for maybe 10 minutes and then discussed or listened to what we'd written/what our thoughts were etc. Most of my writing during that time was... poetry... maybe I'll post it up here at some point.

I found this blog today: 'Is this Alt Lit?' - the writing is beautiful and resonates with me in ways that I can't explain. I'm looking forward to reading more from her.

The prompts for this month's NaBloPoMo are interesting but... well I find it difficult to write to prompts sometimes. A few answers though:
  • Thursday, April 19, 2012 - What aspect of nature feels the most poetic? I find all of nature poetic... which aspect? Um. Maybe the waxing and waning of the moon? Changing seasons? Day into night? I have no response.
  • Tuesday, April 17, 2012 - Are you more a haiku or an epic poem? Um... maybe both? A haiku one day... an epic poem the next?
  • Wednesday, April 4, 2012 - What is the best romantic poem you've ever encountered? She walks in beauty (Lord Byron)
Happy Thursday all...
