Poetry is to imagine


Poetry isn’t about what you write, it doesn’t even need to be about what you feel. Poetry is about what you imagine. It is an urge of self-expression. It is a sequence of words streaming out, tired of being contained inside.

It is about opening your mind to a whole lot of possibilities – of what was, what is and what will be. It is taking a time machine back to the people left behind, or sticking around to watch others through the glass or going ahead to those you wish you knew.

It is believing that you are making sense to someone out there even if you are not. Poetry is the imagination of life.

I harness words, I thrive on them. I tell stories. I am dreamer, sometimes a poet but mostly I am a Game of Thrones fanatic. Lady Olenna, Lyanna Mormont and Arya Stark are my spirit animals.

  1. I like that @ believing that you are making sense to someone out there even if you are not. We really hope we are, don’t we?
    Have a great weekend Jennifer.
    🙂

  2. Hardly, it’s July here. Time for Nairobi’s winter…

  3. The beauty of poetry is the following it creates from scholars who earnestly believe your true meaning is buried somewhere and are prepared to spend a lifetime explaining it to those who do not share their gift. The beast is the pay!
