I realized at some point today that I rarely write poetry anymore. I really stopped around… 16, or so, but I still occasionally spit one out.
I think that poetry upsets me because I feel like it’s not real if it doesn’t rhyme, but my rhyming often interferes with my thoughts and the true meaning of the poem. Well, the initial meaning of the poem.
Have you guys seen this video? This is what goes through my head when I try to write poetry now!
One of our 6-week coven goals is to write some invocations to a god and goddess of our choice, which means, like it or not… slam poetry is where I’m headed.
Who are your favorite gods? Do you write your own invocations or take them from other texts?
