Good Morning Sunshine! Poetry?

Rose of Sharon, An Inktense pencil exercise 2016.

What is poetry? Poetry to me, as the poet, means the creation of puzzles for others to read. Puzzles where they can find bits of themselves, because we are more a like than different. When is a puzzle finished? Perhaps never. I say this because you can always tweak one, or spin off into a new tangent of verse. Once the mind locks into this mind set there you are onto a topic dear to your heart. Or one you have something to say something about. “I’ve written this before____” “I forget my train of thought____Let me see___?”

I’ve my morning brew made from coffee beans today. I expect it to be really good! Wicked Joe’s Breakfast Blend. I pulled Walt Whitman’s Leave’s Of Grass and Henry David Thoreau”s Walden; Life In The Woods. Both of these are paperbacks, I really would rather have hardcovers. I do have Thoreau and Whitman in hard cover, but have chosen these for their smallness. I already have several books out to reference. I have a goal to begin reading poetry again or books of interest. There is a lot one can plan in a day’s time. And its not possible to do it all! Mornings are for writing in. No matter if it is blog, pen pal letters or poetry. I got that down. It gives my brain something solid to meander through.

Yesterday was taken up with the dentists. Necessary folk those fellows___ladies. Mine happens to be a nice man who will over time get more of my money, I only need to preserve things in limbo land.

I did not realize that there are many people out there who do love poetry and write it. I just did not think about this. Maybe the art of writing poetry is not lost after all, one simply needs to find it.

Well, Good morning! And best wishes! Thank you for reading my blogs! I do deeply appreciate it! Tuesday, all day long! I will work to make them worthwhile. Best wishes! Pejj

I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is https://www.anisettestudios.com/ Here you can view and purchase Shibui, sign up for my newsletters, blog, and read articles about Shibui Found Image Art. Patrons get great deals several times a year and special items at times. My site makes it easy to contact me. My primary art form is Shibui Found Image Art. Shibui begins with action art and stems from the imagination. It is like seeing something in the clouds or solving a puzzle. Its creative process has its own rules and requires what I call reverse engineering due to a lack of an understructure and purely out of the imagination. In addition to those who patron me, my target groups are those who use art therapy. I will soon be teaching live. Contact me if you would like to learn live. I use Zoom. I request that although my art, other images, and what I write is now published by me here on WordPress; I do ask you do not to use my artwork, poetry, or the information about Shibui Found Image Art without my permission. I am quite available to make such requests. I wish to share the following: The existentialist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir wrote a book called The Ethics of Ambiguity. In it, she lays out a guiding ethic in response to the philosophy of existentialism. It might be somewhat familiar to you already. She writes, “To will oneself free is also to will others free. This will is not an abstract formula. It points out to each person concrete action to be achieved.” Best wishes to all! Have good times and keep safe! Pejj
