Becoming a poet?

Affirmative Poetry does not mean that you have to become a poet – or ever create a finished poem.beatnik poet

  1. Your form of Affirmative Poetry may be more in the vein of “poetic expression” – fun, fresh, interesting, creative or beautiful words.
  2. The issue is not to “become a poet”, but to go to the place where poetry lies.  To learn how to make yourself receptive – to be a channel for Spirit.  I am not a brilliant poet, though some of the stuff that comes through me is kind of brilliant.  It’s just that in the area of poetry I have pretty much learned how to surrender to Spirit.  It’s the most spiritual experience i have, is to be taken over by something bigger and better than me.
