Of a lighthouse
That stands on a lone island,
In a forgotten country.
Thunder and lightning
A thousand voices carried by the winds.
PS: Today, I am getting personal, call it a tell-tale . Lately, I have been feeling like my poetry is static. Like it’s not growing. I feel that an artist regardless of the specialty, needs growth to develop skill.
Over the years, reading has helped me when I felt like this. There are times months and months pass by before I can write again. Lately, I am trying to write every week and read when I can.
On one of those days when I was uncovering every surface on the internet for poetry, I landed on a poem by Richard Ali: Five Stations for Various. You can find it here http://expoundmagazine.com/five-stations-various-richard-ali/.
People, these are goals. One day, I shall write like this. I have come a long way but clearly, I still have a long way to go.
One day, I shall write a poem like ‘Five Stations for Various.’ No, scratch that, I shall write poems like this. This is currently my go to poem when I want to unravel creativity.
Oh and he is a lawyer. Isn’t this another sign? 😉
