A Breath And A Poem

Published April 20, 2012 by Malena

My beautiful poem.
You are like that blanket.
You are open to those who see.
Those who hear.
Those who listen to me.
It is how I have found my voice.
An audience.
Through my words will find it.
Will find my way.
My poem, it comes from within.
And inspired to grow.
With life and the intimate things I know.
I am inspired by it.
I like it.
I have an unconditional love for it.
I want to draw it.
The love for her is sweetly unexpected.
It is mild.
Like the heart of a child.
It breathes and grows.
In two worlds like the dolphin in the sea.
One breath above water for you and below it dwells for me.

I found this poem in some notes I had for writing my novel. It was timely so because lately I seemed to have lost inspiration to write poetry. I’m not sure why… is it simply writer’s block, or do I need to shift myself to that space again where I was writing poetry? My poems are like the breaths I take, and they do take on different forms, as I continue to create in my spare time. Feel free to share your views and opinions, and as always I’m thrilled when people like my posts.

Thank you for reading.

    • You’re most welcome! And thanks for your words. I agree, I was thinking of going to the beach today, and hopefully , as odd as this may sound, the sea will speak to me, and I will find my poem again.

  • How much do I love this poem! It comes from right inside of you…from your innermost soul, it seems. I hope you are giving this one a wide audience, like on PrefacMe or Google+. It is clear as a Spring day. Love it!

    • Hi David! Thanks! My poems are what I call my ‘excess treasures’. They are deep down in me, and once I have the energy to release them, it makes me feel good. This is such a poem. I wonder if other people have experienced the same. I will share it on PrefacMe and Google+ soon.
