If Thinking Could Be Blown Away

If Thinking Could Be Blown Away

Hello my readers, here is a poem I wrote for one of my poetry classes. It was recently workshopped but I thought I should share it in it’s original form, once edited and played around with I might post a new version. This is welcome to multiple interpretations which is something I discovered during the workshop. The title of the poem is inspired by MBV’s song “Blown a Wish”.

This poem is dedicated to many, to all, and to one.

Enjoy

SOTW #47

Honestly…

The only person I’ve been listening to every day since April 6 is: KALI UCHIS

Who cannot love a Queen like her? She is by far one of my favorites music icons ever. I can’t even remember the first time I heard of her. I’m pretty sure I wrote a post about her as a new artist discovery.

I know Cardi B came out with a new album on the same day but I have yet to listen to it. Kali Uchis was here first for me and I can’t let my Colombia Queen not get her light to shine.

ISOLATION in its entirety is beautiful. Song after song she surprises me and makes my ear holes cry for more. These are a couple of songs that are my favorites (excluding her singles released before the album release)….

Hello! Happy First day of spring. I would have posted a new playlist today but I am behind on my SOTW! But don’t worry, a new playlist will be published this week!

Lately, I’ve been listening to a mixture of song and artists, so nothing in particular.

Most of these songs are on a playlist I made where I save new songs to show to you guys. Pretty much all of these will appear on the Spring Break Playlist…

Why do I write about food?

Why do I write about food?

A short post where I ramble about writing…

I have come to the realization that I like to write about food. A lot.

Through my poetry, I almost always have something to say that involves food. It happens through a metaphor or a imagery that I come up from the start or serves as the centerpiece of my poetry.

There is something about food that I love. Doesn’t food make people happy? It can be rewarding, it can be uniting, it can complete, it can serve. Food can do a lot of things in our life. I know for a fact that when I get out of a class or it’s the end of the day, I am so grateful to finally be able to eat. It can either be with a friend or by myself, food is something that refreshes and fulfills an empty stomach.

I usually write about fruit. It’s easier to create a metaphor for the type of fruit I’m using. Since high school, I’ve always had an obsession with fruit. I would eat apples, strawberries, and bananas almost every day to maintain my sweet tooth. My best friend even decided to call me Babyfruit because of how much I would eat them.

WHYDO I WRITE ABOUT FOOD_

Now that I think about it-I don’t have a full explanation why I use fruit or food in my poetry. It is one of the few things that has attached to my writing. I don’t give myself much credit because there is so much to improve on my writing.  Writing is a process and always needs revision. Revision is the hardest for me, besides starting a poem.

I’ve been trying to observe my writing patterns and my stress has been prohibiting my creativity and inspiration. I’m in a stump where I have no idea what to write about. I still have not written a short story!

But, writing takes time! I have much to learn.
