I think I came to a realization today. I like poetry! Well, some of the devices of poetry and applying them to my writing. I’ve found the missing link in my blog. I thought this venue too dry but not so. I can hear the metre in my head again, whether you can or not. Whether it’s ever truly been there or not. I used to write with whimsy and I’ve missed it. I can find places to infuse words that you might not expect them there. To me, those tiny trespassers adding music. This post, a little thick, I know, but somehow subtler within my goals and interests I can place them.
Self-indulgent? Perhaps. Who would you rather I indulge?
And so I’ll continue to write about something somehow more mundane, but less so now. Writing and revising long after you’ve read until I feel it’s finished. I feel much better now.
Dear 43 Things, please add ‘study poetry’ to my list. Also, mark ‘come up with a catchy name for my blog’ complete!
