Poetry...


"Write down the thoughts of the moment. Those that come unsought for are commonly the most valuable." ~Francis Bacon 

In motion... because when I think of some words other words automatically follow (especially if they're song lyrics).

I've signed up to do daily blogging with April's NaBloPoMo because I really haven't been disciplined with the blogging... and I miss it somewhat. Today I was told that I needed to catch up on my blog. I guess that's enough of a nudge to get me to do this. 

Theme for this month: 


Um. 

Already I feel as though I'm going to be doing a lot of "I don't know what to write!" statements... 

I don't write poetry. I did once upon a time when I was much younger... I'm not sure what happened along the way. I do read poetry and as it's the first day I'll share one of my favourites. I don't recall the author (though it's from a story called 'The Crystal Ship' that's in a book in a box under my bed - I can locate it at some point) but it's stuck with me ever since I read it as a young teenager and the words flow through my head on odd occasions. It's about... transformation... and leaving the shell of this body for another. What does that say about me that it made such an impression? I don't know really. The poem:

"Who will dissolve? Who coagulate?
Who to pass the dragon,
and enter
the dark abyss? 
Silently, without motion, 
she enters the ocean."

Night all... I guess I'll be blogging everyday this month... Encourage me? :)

peace,
Ren
