Happy World Poetry Day

They say that there are only 2 kinds of people who are awake in the morning, the lonely and the loved. I don’t know which one I am, but during these hours between sleep and waking, that’s when I feel the surge of life. Writing, for me, is translating some lost sensation into a place you can return to, a dream you’re trying to touch. So as the edge of dawn approaches, it creeps upon me. This fire, this hope. So I hope, and I hope. And I hold onto this hope in my heart like a lifeboat, and I write.

  1. Marie, I love your creativity and the videos that you produce with your poetry. Very beautiful and heartfelt. Nice job. Keep writing! 🙂


  2. Your post makes me think of taxi drivers. most of the people I ride with who are taxi drivers are night people. They take risks !! They are afraid but they get on with the job. A lot of them are in Alcoholics Anonymous. I’ve had some of the most amazing conversations I’ve ever had in my life with them!!


Tell me what you think!
