My Own Poetry

Choosing the poems for this section of the web site was “a mission”. Deciding how to arrange them was another! Our individual responses to a poem depends so much on mood, time and place when reading them, even when we write the poems ourselves. I discovered that poems written years ago could mean something very different in the present. Poems I once remembered as significant, seemed trite or even meaningless. Others became so much better, after another “little edit”. Some were just “themselves” and stayed the same.

In the end I opted for the following categories (at least for now) but accept that, even so, some still can float over boundaries and most could be ordered in different ways.

  1. Life
  2. Happiness
  3. Sadness
  4. Places
  5. Medley
