First, I want to thank Maggie Mae, a poet who I am currently following. I hope that you could find this discussion interesting, she really does write provocative poetry that will sure ignite your lost sense of curiosity and wonderment.
Wait, before anything else, i’ve got to say wow, nice layout! (it’s been three years since i’ve written poetry and what my lit prof kept telling me was that i should find a better word than nice for expression, but i still couldn’t find a word. hahaha)
Just as a writer of filipino fiction and essays, Butch Dalisay once said it, a writer’s block is a state of fermentation that an idea is not yet ripe for it be used, perhaps we are still lacking in experience, wisdom, and enough vocabulary to cover every word. (yeah, i dig this blog, i can totally feel your experience brewing with well grounded black coffee).
yep, a poet is only as good as his last one. hahaha, my last one mind you was ‘Profundity’…was it? See? I don’t even remember what date i wrote it! hahaha
Yeah, after I lessened my time training in Karate and Arnis, most of my free time went to that i guess. I found out that I missed having a good conversation about books, a pinch of philosophy, a batter of spiritual foundations (or any spiritual values you follow which keeps you sane in a cut throat work place ), anime, manga, anything that could be discussed about. I missed that part there. Although I’m sure that the physical aspect would have slower progress, i find that it is more balanced, think of it as having fullness, as opposed to focusing on a few things which I would just do, i think I like to keep my whimsy once a week after 5-6 days of schedules. if you know what i mean sister.
hmm…it’s actually conversing with people, about books, or just pretty much writing about anything, aaaaand the whimsy. I am more of a rainbow than a laser.
And i want to thank the poems that i liked in your collection that inspired me, wait, that is an inappropriate word for the experience…the poems in your collection reignited, yes that’s THE word, REIGNITED. Thank you for being one of those people.
let’s all not get too much preoccupied with our work to forget what scientists and children both have, curiosity and the sense of wonderment.
Wow, i can almost have this posted as a response blog and have it linked to your site. I do hope that it reignites more followers, eh?
Seriously, thanks Maggie Mae.
Now that you’ve read it, well, i might analyse her poem for the sake of doing it since I do SO MUCH ENJOY reading her work. “The Only Hands I Want To Know” Please check her poetry out.
Mmm…Finally, i found how i can categorize my poetry analyses for the fun of it, entitled “As the Mountain Moves…” Followed by the following words as needed:
- Poetry: Title
- In Response: To Name – a long response with interesting (at least to me 😀 ) ideas I might like to expound or elaborate on.
- Poetry Analyses: Author’s Name, Apostrophe “S” & Title of Work.
