rebooting the blog

So, I’m feeling inspired to start again with blog 2.0.  Looking back on my (far too distant) creative writing days, I recall that my muse has always expressed herself most succinctly in poetry, so that feels like the right place to start again.

remembering poetry
and how I used to be,
expressing myself without fear

before I started listening to the world
and not to my own inner voice

I left it behind
art, music, gypsy spirit
looking for a way to be in the world
catching glimpses here and there of a way forward
but always holding back

until I turned
and there I saw a star
shining across the water

and found in it a reflection
of the woman I left behind
and found the medicine I needed

remembering poetry
and leaving fear behind
