Poetry is poetry. Just that. I like to experiment with different forms of poetry. I like to write all kinds of poetry – light, dark, humorous,in between. Many of my poems do come from my experiences of life. Either my own experiences, or what I have observed. I have cancer. I am blind. I am in physical pain. Sometimes I write candidly about that. I still experience great joy in my life that is ebbing away. I write about that. I write about living. I write about dying. I write about death. I nearly died a while ago – I saw into eternity. I write about that. I write about being in a different reality to everyone else. It is my world. I write about my world. I write about the Divine – because I have experienced it – we all have the Divine within us, wgatever name we call it by. I might write about the Cross one day – because that is part of my own faith. The Dark Night of the Soul, which is painful, but which purifies us if we allow it to. I write as I AM. This is ME. Sometimes I am sad. Sometimes I am happy. Sometimes I am ecstatic. Sometimes I am hurt. This world is slipping away for me. I write as I want to. I am so grateful that so many people read my writing, and that they find inspiration from it. I am so moved by all your wonderful Comments, and your love. Please keep coming. Much love,

    Love you too Joan. Will email you soon, maybe later today. It is the Anniversary of my father’s death today, so I am kind of taken up with that in my mind. Hence my rather dark poem. Xo first thing this morning.
