Micro Poetry~”I am my own muse”  (posted by Kerry) (55 words)

“Do you have a recurring theme which continues to inspire you to write poetry?

“I am my own muse, the subject I know best.”
Frida Kahlo

A love of nature–
We are surrounded by beauty
that some take for granted.
It is unfathomable to me
that people pre-judge others
they have not even met.
Why not become acquainted
before you taint someone?
We need to be interested
in different cultures.
As for guns, that’s a poem
for another day.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    This is a very good question.. but I have found that poetry extends a hand of friendship across the world.
