As I learn from many others, one of the blessings of writing poetry is the way we focus on each word. If there are fewer words, what are the best words?
On Sunday, I was praying the Psalms, and the word lovingkindness was given, and I thought, “What a beautiful word, and hope to include the word in a poem.”
Nature is also a source of inspiration. My poems usually are given as I read and pay attention to daily life. My overall goal is to offer hope. Everyone has a story, and I have needed to begin again a few times. Always beauty, always hope. Creativity with blogs works so well for me.
This tanka is from my site, Poems From Psalms and Nature.
