SPC {Introduction-1}

I am a poem
a tangle of meaningless words
carefully chosen
placed side by side
creating a voice
a verse of power and life
I am a poem
a mix of secret metaphors
sometimes contradictory
always illustrating a truth
I know to be real right now
I am a poem
a string of letters and spaces
sounds and silences
both spoken from holy places
sacred depths
expressing what needs to be said now
to keep the soul alive
I am a poem
each breath held then released
anticipating what's next
each pause a time for reflection
each comma separating past from present
each line break a moment of emphasis
I am a poem
tumbling lyrical rhythm of life
creative breath of being
a letter from the gods to a universe of light
I am a poem

Really wonderful. Loved this. "I am a poem/a string of letters and spaces/sounds and silences" - that's my favorite.

Thanks for this. :)

Great poem, such a wonderful way to describe yourself. It reminds me of a quote I have on the back of one of my neckalces, something I have adopted into my own life:

"Live Your Poem"...

What a beautiful thing to be, a poem. As a woman of thought-full and beautiful words, this is so apt for you. And what a wonderful picture, it feels so honest.

That was awesome.

I like that the words are a tangle and meaningless, yet carefully chosen.

sometimes contradictory.

I like the whole poem. The whole poem that is you.

Beautifully written, Michelle.

oh how weird. i just posted my first poem ever and it's about me, my life, as a letter to this world and i just popped over to yours and it's very similar in it's sentiment. especially when you write "a letter from the gods to a universe of light." how wierd/cool is that? your poem is fantastic!
