Why i enjoy writing? - poetry
During interviews and broad-spectrum conversations with the public,one of the most challenging questions for me to answer(timely and thoroughly) is,"Why do you enjoy writing"?
So due to the challenge manifested in such a question,I pondered on creating an answer. Many reasons came to mind,but after digesting much"time for thought",I managed to condense my comeback to three items. I enjoy copy for three reasons: self-expression,personal sensitivity and thirst for adventure.
"Self-expression" is our Creator's gift to all-everyone has a touch to say. The change comes with how a character expresses him or herself. Having an conduit to relieve ones inner disorder or joy is necessary;and when the consequences is a clean-living construction of some type,it ought to be collective with others. Complexity arises when difficult to convey how others feel since a person's self-expression(being a writer) is a prerequisite to accord another's expression(being an editor). There's an interwovenness of not public feelings,dogma and personality allied with a person's self-expression. Much of what writers' convey is the conclusion of the chemistry of feelings,experience or both. Most of the time the writers' feelings prevail. Deep down in all of us there are voices whose vocal chords are pencils behind you to be sharpened and used. Self-expression is the breath of opinion,the debauchery of disposition and the only river worth drowning in. "Honesty" rules the castle of "self-expression".
"Personal sensitivity" varies from being to person. Much of a person's ethical,ethnical,moral and environmental exposers dictates his or her perception of the world. Some writers concentrate only on a a number of chastisement of their total resources. Others are more itinerant and investigational as to absorb from a code of all ambiance obtained. Inspiration ignites sensitivity whether it be amazing heard,felt or read. To be able to characterize a sensation by the use of words is satisfying. Atmosphere make,break,increase and cut the rhythms of ones mental and bodily compositions. Ones "degree of compassion" rules the castle of "personal sensitivity".
The "thirst for adventure" deters boredom. Anyone, whether being a critic or not,imagines events,incidents,possibilities and probabilities in their minds. These mental occurrences(visions) dwell contained by us for short periods of time and every so often forever. But until the inspirations are subjected to some type of tangible(music,painting,literature,sculpture,etc. )medium, they can't be known and common with others. If you don't want to be creative,you won't be!! Good writers aren't born,they are crafted!!! You are the lettering that you write about!! You're a vital part of the incidents you describe. If you're inscription about a diehard tyrant,you are that tyrant!! If it's a cross about the world,you're on that voyage!! Just meeting in the boat won't do it!!! One must set sail to extinguish the "thirst for adventure".
Writers are day-in day-out dreamers,dressed in all colors,travelling athwart paper pulp by way of a dictionary.
Now I ask you,"Why do you enjoy writing"?

Three Poems and Paradise Lost [One for Hell, One for Heaven one for an Inca King]
The Fast-moving water of HellHell's furnace- Likened to a chimney Vomits her torrents Of flames- Into the air Through earths crust And the earth's trembles-!Agitated, she projects A thick curtain of smoke To heat the feet of those Who provoke her every wish. Like molten iron She waits for the soul(the moment) Then molds, into her enclosure Human serpents? Out of savage flesh!No storm, no struggle No eruption, no typhoon, Just a terrible phenomenon, Hell is adept of producing; And upon death, Back into the Abyss They melt!.

Two Poems: Boyhood, and Old Age [with a note on style]
BoyhoodOh me! Thy glorious days have flown! I mealy noticed, now they're gone, How briefly conceded the flowers! Time does not stop youth's bells; It was like I was in a spell, And my face now shows the hours!Ah yes! My childlike past days, Still lively in my fair-haired age, When all was quick and new Now wrapped in movies and books, And links and ancestors were all I knew And love was shown by open looks!#741 6/26/05Old AgeThey stop by to see me now To find what's old and new, They peer into my-everything, And analyze my views; They tell me what I must like, And that I ought to be grieved-These are my fragile associates That takes the strongest liberties?I mean to take the signal off; And put the phone exterior the door; In vain I speak to tell them why -I shan't live here anymore!#742 6/26/05A note on Style: some citizens ask, "What style of poetry to you like the best?" I can never fulfil that question; it is open-ended to me. If I feel like flouting free from tradition as in the poem of: "Old Age," so be it; and if I feel conventional verse, a stricter decorous configuration must be used, as in "Boyhood," and can add abundantly to the poem, so it is.

You are to me my lifeline my security. That scares me.
Tsunami -a Poem Devoted To Help Aid and Awareness and Further Forthcoming Harmony. Make Peace Not War
Real Power.One Tsunami, and all our armies, Seem belittled by their wars, What Animals fled, and tribesmen read, Finally Arrives with crushing roar, Wholesale slaughter, completely by water, Makes us seem an irrelevance, Concepts of power, alteration by the hour, Faced with original elements.
Ocean Heal Me
Ocean Heal MeOcean heal my wounds Let your waves curl and foam on my body Wash away blood, heal scarsOcean renew me with your power As interminably you roll Giving depth that's been drainedOcean keep me warm Wrap me in your brine Caress me with your tidesOcean diffuse my tears As they flow in you I clean my soulOcean let me grow in your depths Color me bright blue, coral, green Clear = revitalizedOcean your spray anoints me Cool and refreshed My spiritual renewalOcean be my friend Hold me flowing in your currents Ever moving, ever changingOcean, heal me.© 1983 Susan BaconSusan Bacon is a researcher, creator and teacher.
