I am proud to share my poem, Awakening, is published at Brave and Reckless!
Christine Ray is the voice behind Brave and Reckless, where she writes because she has to. I connect with writing out of passion and so am further delighted to know my poem has a home in her world of words.
Awakening is written in response to the prompt ‘mad world‘ that Christine shared with fellow writers. Prompts challenge me to think in new ways and unearth the deepest thoughts that the prompt awakens in me.
For a while words turned in my mind. I wrote nothing. I did not know how I felt about a mad world. Slowly I came to realize that madness does not have to be terrifying or disorienting. There is order in all madness if we bring it into the chaos with ourselves.
I realized I wanted to say something new. I wanted to be awakened. Hence this poem came into being and it is one of my favorite pieces thus far.
It is a delight to express myself creatively. It is even more of a delight to come away from musing with my deepest feelings down on paper.
I challenge you to unearth your deepest feelings. When it comes to taking big steps and making important decisions, do so with all your thoughts in front of you. Make sure your mind is clear.
In the meantime, I invite you to enjoy Awakening and be awakened in your own way.
Do not stop
Focus on your starving fingers
