At the time I wrote this, I was going to poetry readings and very much enjoying them. I was gaining a new appreciation for different voices and was becoming more encouraged to write. 

 What or whom has encouraged you to write?


A SLICE OF POETRY

Poetry is meant
to be savored
…slowly…
like a delicious
chocolate
cake…
biting
into every word,
chewing it carefully,
swallowing–
letting it slide down
sensually…
into your ears
and allowing it
to be digested
by your mind,
and enjoyed timelessly.
Some poetry…
is like – quick – hot – sex.
It leaves you breathless,
Wanting more – but not yet…
Not until you catch your breath.
