Searching For My New Life

Genres: Poetry
Sub-genres: Haiku, Free-Verse, Rhyming

Three poems I wrote as an exploration in writing.  Content and form of each is different, but there is a tenuous connection to the anthology theme.

Poetry, as an expression of inner life, can be revelatory. These are some wonderful, upbeat, calls to the world about change, happiness, and love. You can read these verses, and easily find a smile and a good feeling for the writer. And what better way is there to spend a few minutes of your day? :)


Response from the author:

Thanks for the wonderful review, Geron.  Sorry I missed commenting on the review earlier.  I do want you to know that your stories are one of the things that bring fun and happiness to my life.  In many ways they reflect the belief I want to convey in my poems.  It is not what happens to us, but how we choose to make the best of what happened.

Beautifully personal poems of courage, adventurism and openness that led the author to discovery and happiness. They are inspirational, read on and be inspired, I dare you.

Response from the author:

Thank you Mancunian!  You and your stories are an inspiration to me, and your words make me very happy!
