I love reading poetry. When I read in poetry, I start thinking in poetry. And this is always exciting. Until I start speaking in poetry, and people start looking at me like I’m weird.
About three years ago, I gave myself a challenge: to write and post an original poem a day for 30 days on my blog. I loved this project, because writing, and especially writing poetry, always helps me connect my everyday reality to a deeper and richer meaning. I enjoyed rereading these poems, and I decided to gather them all up together here in this post so that I can share them with you. I hope you enjoy them. If you have a favorite, or a set of lines that speak to you, I’d love to hear from you in the comments!
