Poetry Shower

My soul only craves poetry lately. Writing fiction takes a lot of my time – re-writes, re-reads, and re-edits… lots of struggle, only to find that I don’t bring anything new to the table; that what I write has already been written by others; that my ideas are not at all ingenious. So I guess that it is time for me to quit writing stories, and to focus more on writing poems.

Poetry Shower

It has been raining all day today
And the gray clouds paint the sky,
In the South, flash floods
In our heart, it's blue and morose

It has been raining all day today
But all I really wanna do
Is to shower you with poetry
So that you might stay warm
Inside words made of sunlight

It has been raining in my heart lately
And water erased all of my words,
My creativity became destructive
My body, a vessel of pain

It has been raining in my heart lately
But all I really wanna do
Is to touch this water image
And to carry us towards the sunlight
Towards warmth and towards what's gold

It has been raining today
Water droplets dot the plants
While the birds continue to sing
Safe within the leaves of trees

It has been raining today
And all I wanna do
Is to write of what I see and feel
So as to shower you with poetry
While Sunday eclipses away the rain.

Hello everyone, and welcome to my personal blog. This is a self-taught adventure in creative writing, craft that I am passionate about; learning writing and all the stuff that concerns this industry while surfing on the waves of the internet, and I aspire to make a living through selling my own books and blogging, because why not. I live on the island of Mauritius with my husband, my two children, and my muse. I am an eclectic person, love the sublime and the strange; I am also interested in all types and forms of art that please my mind.
