So many talented poets and writers were there today from all over Northern Florida. It always is a treat to attend these events, always good to hear other artists work. Inspirational. A chance to socialize. I am so much a hermit, I think writers are a bit anti-social, it comes with the territory. You need to take time alone to write, to mull, to think of things. Anyway I do. And, for me, writing is how I communicate. I don't express myself well in things that matter with my spoken words, I express myself best with my written words. I have to be able to sit and think, write it down just so, work the words to express what I want to say "just so". So many times I can't verbalize what I want to say out loud, at the moment. Not if it's really important, not under pressure. It comes out wrong many times. That's why I write. I'm a writer, it is who I am.
Poetry is one of my many art forms. I am a creative person. I crochet, make jewelry, scrapbook, do crafts, paste things together, make art..... Poetry is my passion. Writing is an essential part of who I am. So, today I got to do something very special, I shared my words and got to hear other people share their special words.
It was a good day
as ancient poets shared their words
