I choose to write
Write my way to clarity
Write my way back to sanity
Write my way back to finding me

It might be bad
But bad is how I've always thought it is
Badly put together and incomplete
But that's not how all others think it is

On my part
A good distraction... a way of balancing
How things are and how they should be
Not just for me but all that's around

It's not all I wanted but it's close
That it's done right
But not necessarily perfectly
That's the beauty of it I suppose

Writing Poems

writing poems changed my life
writing poems cleared my mind
writing poems made me friends
writing poems met some ends
Writing poems got me some cheques
writing poems made me stop
Writing poems
Got me to the point where
I can't write anymore

I stopped writing,
I stopped putting pen to paper,
Structure to thought,
Stopped creating clauses for words...
I felt nothing,
Nothing for the habit,
Breaking that that was formed.
But today I felt it,
Something I recognized from before,
A spark in the fog,
A current and a flow,
A few words...
to open up the way for more

Natalie Merchant: Singing old poems to life

I remember watching this in Garsen in 2010 one of the places I didn't have on my radar. In one of those little places... and enjoyed listening to this today just as much... a walk...a cup of coffee...a lot of music...friendly faces... many smiles.. the little things not to be taken for granted...

Haven't shared much of my own stuff in a while but more than happy to share the little things I like...poetry or music and in this case old poetry wrapped up in new music...
