Recently I have not been writing that much poetry, but the other day I had a little burst of creativity and wrote whatever you would call the collection of words below me. Since it was a first time in a while that I had written something I thought I would share. Here is a bit of writing that you could probably call a poem that is very much a work-in-progress.
I see like a camera.
The little things catch your eye.
Naturally normal, borderline boring.
Then, a change in perspective.
An idea in focus.
Suddenly the leaves on the trees
are not what they are
but what they could be.
The bright wall splattered with paint is
an escape from reality.
The people walking by are not simply that,
but the stars of short stories
captured in RAW format.
A flick of a wrist,
a hint of a smile.
Red scarf in the wind,
Converse on her feet,
a look of wonder and fear
both trying to compete.
Someone’s movement and magic
captured in time,
ready to keep going
if we use our mind’s eye.
“Poetry is language at its most distilled and most powerful.” – Rita Dove
In case you did not know, it is World Poetry Day! Today we celebrate all of the past, present, and future poets along with their work. Poetry is a big part of society as it is a form of art that can bring to light many different issues, and it also helps people to be expressive in an interesting and entertaining way.
Put some time aside and pick up a book, either to read someone else’s written creations or to try and come up with your own.
I know what I will be writing, as well as reading…
Woah. It has been a year.
On September 7th of 2015, I started this blog. And now I am here, a year later. Time has flown by, at least through my eyes.
I have posted a total of 19 posts, with many more to come.
I would like to give thanks for all of support from everyone who has read my blog. You are a big part of the reason I do what I love, writing.
Me: Has nothing to write about.
Me: Writes about having nothing to write about!
But all and all aside, I did not have anything to write about for the past few days…. So I decided to make a post about things to write about! If you have writers block or are just out of inspiration, come check out my list and hopefully it will help…. But more not.
- Puppies! Or pets, everyone loves animals.
- Your favourite book
- Technology, how about a product review?
- You gotta love rocks.
- Social Media… And how the Internet will take over.
- The fact that even teenagers think Donald Trump will ruin the world
- Chocolate (yum)
- That Sherlock comes out only every two years, the wait is painful
- Plants, succulents, daises, grass, trees, bushes, cactuses, sunflowers, Venus flytraps, evil tulips

(If you have not noticed, yes some things in this list were exaggerated, and yes this list is a bit of a joke.)
