A Poem

I released this to my Instagram followers this week. I originally wrote this a few years ago but I have been re-working it the last few weeks and I’m happy with my final result.

Poems always feel more personal to me, than stories. Maybe it’s because I feel more when I write and read them. The words reach in and grab hold of you, squeezing you in quick, little bursts. They pluck at your heart strings and tickle your spine. They hurt. They heal. They can give you peace. Slow or fast, sweet or sad, poetry is the sing-song voice of the soul.

Your Homework: Find something that moves you, a song, movie scene, or poem, and go put that emotion into a poem of your own.

Saturday: The Spark will update tomorrow. Visit it each and every Saturday for your weekly writing prompt.

This blog updates each Friday and Saturday with writing resources, prompts, and of course, the random things I decide to post.
