Appeared on: Wednesday Showcase: Acceptance + Spring Song + Silence In A Hot Garden + Like Angel Wings
As I pick up the reins as this month’s showcase editor, I hope I can follow in Dan, Holly & Eithne’s fabulous footsteps! I’m not a writer in my day job, but I’m a writer in my heart and write poetry, fiction and articles for online and offline media.
April is National Poetry Month, so it’s only fitting I start off my month with that medium. My love affair with poetry really started in school; I was fascinated by the depth of emotion a poem can express in only a few words, as opposed to much longer pieces of prose.
The theme for Write On! Issue 8 is ‘Growth’ and how we navigate this season of change, so I have chosen poetry based around these ideas.
To introduce myself properly, the first poem I’m presenting is one of mine: Acceptance. I believe before any growth or change can take place, it’s vital we accept things as they are, including ourselves, warts and all.
