To connect I look for the well-worn path
It leads me down the center aisle
The trees stand as proud parishioners
The stumps serve as pews ready to receive me
The earthy smell is my incense
I breathe in the gift and give it back
A homeostatic symbiosis, singularity obtained
The wild animals are my brethren
They look at me with welcome understanding
The backlit canopy is my stained-glass window
The offering plate holds only love and promises of protection
Money doesn’t grow from trees
It’s made from their corpses
The mother suffers tremendously from man’s pursuit of it
The very fact that it’s green is blasphemous!
I come here to feel connected
I try to regain DNA’s memory
From ancestors that walked the path first
To remember what is real
To find my roots
I must dig
Why do we blog?
Why do I blog? I really like the community aspect of it, of getting comments and interacting with fellow writers. I love to read your work, as well…and comment, to let you know I’m connecting with what you’ve written. When I first started out I concentrated on follower count, but I’ve come to realize that it is the deeper connections with the individuals that means more than simply how many subscribers I have.
I blog to simply keep writing, as it is always easy to let life get in the way and let the writing slide. Here I can write poetry, short stories, intros to possible longer pieces, and in any genre, and you will be there to give me feedback. Feedback is the best!
I know that I should also start writing a book. My father would always ask if I’m doing any writing for myself, outside of blogging, and I haven’t so far. Coming to you with the posts I’ve written is my way of keeping my connection to writing, to say that I am still here and I am a writer. Reading your work not only teaches me new styles of writing, as before I started blogging I would never had tried either poetry or memoir writing, and it also gives me strength to continue on. We are all on the same path and when I read and connect with you it is me smiling at you as we walk along this path together.
Now…why do you blog?
Growl little man
Gnash your teeth
Brandish your claw-hand
Let the power seeth
Know you can be more than you are
Your very being is made up of stars
Pretending gives you a wider horizon
Different hats all waiting for you to try on
Just remember to always return to me
My little man is my favorite you, you can be
So go ahead growl, gnash, brandish and seeth
Because beautiful, powerful and wondrous is what you are to me
