Sculpting your thoughts into a poem can take you on a journey where your conscious mind is momentarily cast adrift, and you focus the energy of your message in few words that paint a story. At WAW we rely on poetry to manifest our narrative curiously and creatively.
Sculpting your thoughts and emotions into a poem can take you on a journey into your inner universe where your conscious mind is momentarily cast adrift. Like other forms of meditation, writing poetry requires that you stay fully present during the process, rather than focusing on any outcome. In doing so, you release any inhibitions or ideas of "what needs to happen," so that your thoughts can flow freely through you. When you write poetry, you are able to see the reflections of your innermost self imprinted on a page. Don't think about what you are going to say next, and don't worry about spelling, grammar, or logic. Instead, be as descriptive, visually precise, rhythmic, or lyrical as you want to be. When you feel complete, put the pen down, and read over what you've written. Appreciate this work of art you have created. You may even find that thoughts and emotions you had repressed before are now making themselves known so you can process and release them.
Writing poetry as a powerful form of manifesting our own narrative, as well as a form of meditation. It slow down your mind long enough for you to get out of your own way, so that your soul can freely express its deepest yearnings.
