Poetry

I believe there’s a place for poetry in everyone’s life. My wife was sending me poems today that made me realize there is no one way to approach writing. The poems she sent me got me out of my comfort zone. They got me to reimagine imagery and to reassess my approach to poetry.
I began writing by writing poetry. Well, I began writing in my adult life by writing poetry. I never wrote poems as a child. I wrote a lot of stories.
It’s been a long time since I’ve written a poem. It’s been a long time since I’ve read a poem. Until today, when I started reading Tyler Knott Gregson.
I have a book entitled Good Poems which is a compilation of poetry, compiled by Minnesota’s own Garrison Keillor. I devoured that book. For one who is not fully engrossed in the poetry field as I once was, this book was my lifeline to the world of imagery.
If you have poetry that you have written, or poetry that you would recommend, please share it with me. I think it would be good for all of us to re-view the world in a lens of a different shade.

Love and kisses,
Benjamin
