NOVEMBER'S IWSG:

NOVEMBER'S IWSG:
Happy November to one and all:
WHAT I GET OUT OF WRITING:
Poetry writing for me
Begun seriously after two berevemnets.
I found I could write my thoughts on paper,
To get some sort of relievement.

It helped me put my then life
Into some sort of perspective.
I'd sit for many an hour.
Looking back still reflecting.

It was only when I could look,
To some sort of a life alone.
My poetry became more cheerful,
The future had a more secure tone.

Throughout the past years,
I've had my ups and downs.
I've had many days of laughter,
Alas many days of frowns.

Writing poetry has also
Given me the added bonus of friends,
That I've gained  through this wonderful blogging site
The wonderful comments they send.

Yes! writing certainly made a difference to my life.
With four books and charity work behind me,
Although I am going through an insecure phrase right now.
Looking to the future happiness I see.

  1. Happiness is what goodness is there in the current state and what is there in store. It is just wonderful that you have both, Yvonne! You have firstly your poetry writing to keep you happy and secondly future hopes and grand aspirations. Just keep going Ma'am!

  5. Writing your thoughts, your dreams, and what's happening in your life helps to deal with each situation and to know that life changes and as it does we grow and learn. You are a strong woman, Yvonne. Your poetry is honest and beautiful. God bless you.

  8. You are so brave to use poetry as your medium. I can't write poetry to save my life! I always admire folks who do. Also, your reason for liking to write is a wonderful one.

    1. As life can be very lonely, poetry is certainly an outlet.
      I have done four books plus charity for Daniel with my poetry so it has not only helped me but others less fortunate,
