From time to time I come across writers and poets that has a way of putting words together that moves me beyond anything I could have ever imagined. It’s such an intense and wonderful feeling at the same time, and whenever it happens I really do appreciate it although it might be painful.
But there’s something so magical about looking at a piece of paper and in printed words seeing a window into ones own feelings, or a reflection of yourself.
Today I want to highlight a poet that does that for me, time and time again.
I was introduced to Milk and Honey by a colleague, and have since ended up buying the book multiple times, because I keep giving it away. It’s just too good not to be shared. I also read The Sun and Her Flowers, and loved that one too, even though it didn’t move as many times over as the Milk and Honey did.
The first time I read Milk and Honey, I had to take breaks because I would come across poems that just made me bawl my eyes out. Sometimes it was because I could relate to the pain, other times a wish to feel some of the same joy, and other times it was just like reading my own story, or about heartbreak moments that I recognised all too well.
This one right here is one that still hits me every time:
I have so much respect for poets and writers that can awaken as much emotion in a reader that I experience when reading this. And when it comes to personal dreams and goals, I would say that this is one of mine for sure; to write stories and poetry that moves people.
To be moved by words is such a powerful experience, and different people all experience it in different ways❤️
It’s true magic!
