|This is exactly how I read poetry...birds & flowers everywhere.|
My very first piece of writing was a poem. I was four years old and I wrote about a stinkbug. Since then I've continued to write the occasional poem. I find it therapeutic in a way that any other form of writing just isn't. There is a lot of freedom in poetry...and emotion...and symbolism.
I don't share all of my poetry with the world (and this is a good thing! lol)...but I do post one of my poems now and then on my personal blog: ShanonaWriter.
Check them out if you're a poetry person like me...or if you just want to.
