I received a lovely package in the mail a few days ago. Meri, of Meri's Musings, has written a beautiful book of poetry. The photo which graces the cover is also hers, with a poem by the same name within. Visit Meri's website and learn more about this writer and photographer.
Writing poetry is not an area I am particulary good at. I write narrative fiction and non-fiction, but the art of poetry has always escaped me. So I admire a creative spirit who can make few words say so much.
One of the poems in the book, "Lesson Learned," is a poem which I identify with very much...speaking of the process of finding yourself, letting go of one way of thinking and embracing a more growth-minded attitude. At least that is my interpretation; poetry is so personal, two different people can achieve an entirely different perspective from the same passage.
Thank you, Meri - I love your book and the memories it evokes!
