I am new to poetry really.Only about nine months. I was having trouble sleeping and my mind found a distraction from all the negative thoughts swimming around within it! And that was that. I was off . I seem to be most spontaneous at night, when trying to sleep ( grrrrr) but these blooming poems don't hang around! I like to try out new styles, and I love being set challenges! I write poems about anything and everything! I came over to DP because some of my naughtier poems were banned on other sights. Now I feel free to experiment, away from those prudish eyes!
It's a joy, discovering poets with whom I can connect. The talent out there is astounding and totally inspiring! I am hoping being part of such a rich site will continue to stretch my poetry writing! I wish I had discovered my passion for poetry earlier, as I would have had more time to read and learn! I feel that there is a lot of 'catch up' and learning for me to do!
