LET'S HAVE A SERIOUS LOVE JONES SESSION WITH THESE 5 DOPE POEMS BY 5 OF MY FAVES!

What's the best part about Friday? I guess a sense of freedom from the 9-5 grind. However, we can always feel free if we notice the poetry in our lives. What do I mean? Well, poetry is one of those open-ended works of art that shines a light on all the layers of life from the mundane to the marvelous. If we viewed our lives like a never-ending poem, we may appreciate it more. Just a poetic thought. 😏 Anyway, without further adieu, here are 5 other poetic thoughts that are in the more traditional format by some of my favorite fellow bloggers...

the words that come out when you have nothing to say

I stare at blank screens, blank pages and blank thoughts, waiting for a letter, a word, a sentence, an emotion to jolt me back to life. I walk away from the stale canvas and begin to pace in my private space - back and forth I go - collecting as many random thoughts as possible in hopes that one will be the starting point of pure magic.

Media operates on fear.

Not us.

Media breaks people apart.

Not us.

wow! my first poem ever written is 15 years old!

Back in the day, I had a blue notebook. I wrote my very first poem in that book. May 10, 2000, is the exact date. The title is Something I Just Wrote. It's not that good of a poem at all and obviously, I wasn't that inventive with the title but it makes me laugh to read it now and it is very special to me so I thought why not share it on this Freestyle Friday? So I hope you enjoy the words of my 15-year-old self.
