Poetry

Writing poetry is extremely rewarding for me. It allows me to express my thoughts and feelings about all sorts of topics: nature, relationships, contemporary issues, and even abstract ideas. Yet, it’s also challenging. Even for someone who loves to write, it takes a great deal of time to write one poem. You have to take rhythm, shape, vocabulary, and other techniques into account – and most importantly, capture the reader’s imagination and emotions. Think of it as rubbing your belly and patting your head at the same time, in a literary sense.
