Open The Mind’s Window, See The Light…

Today I shall open my window
Like a stranger you I did see
By darkness I was blinded
Now I can see thee friend
My angels guide me
Show you to me
I see light
I am

*My first attempt at a nonnet. A nonnet is a literary poetic form of 9 lines consisting of 9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2 and 1 syllables respectively. It may or may not be rhyming.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
