What is it that sets poetry apart from any other writing genre? While all kinds of writing, in a sense, use words to create pictures in our imaginations, p

 

oetry can seem more like a pure art.

 

Along with the picture, poetry evokes emotion. At its core, it leaves you with a sense of something that touches the deepest part of you, a feeling. Sure, feelings of joy and peace can be easy to sit with. However, they could also be accompanied by a feeling of longing, which can be a little more difficult to deal with. When a poem brings on a feeling of discomfort that begins to ring through your core, you’ve been present with yourself just long enough to recognize your Self.

 

Poetry has a magnanimous role to play in unplugging us from our many distractions, the ones that let us get away with not feeling our feelings. Our smart phones, various social media, ads on TV, in our newsfeeds, celebrity dramas, friends’ dramas, I could go on. Feeling uncomfortable yet?

 

I’m grateful to have this opportunity to have unplugged myself, just enough, in order to feel and express a deep part of my Self.

 

 

REMEMBERING

By Lucy Crisetig

In a room of violet, a spirit so free

Chasing unicorns in a land just waiting for me

 

Here words abound, gentle and light

Eyes that are focused, shining and bright

 

She did wait patiently, for me to return

A little worn yet wiser, for much I did learn

 

Our souls blend as one, for time is no more

Remembering this light, my heart knows to soar

 

Here we write, among the stars

As we wonder if we came, from Venus or Mars

 

In a room of violet, a spirit so free

Whole and complete, the one waiting was me
