My First Poem - The Story

For the Write Tribe Festival - Rediscovering your blogging groove

Day 7 - Tell a story

My story today is about how I started writing Poetry.

I think it was around the year 2004 I remember waking up one morning with a poem in my head. I must have dreamt it because with the words I could also visualise the poem.

I woke up feeling amazed, like I had somehow had a glimpse of the other side and participated in a cosmic dance with someone. It was the most serene feeling I had, yet exhilarating and joyous.  The closest I can explain is circus trapeze artists swinging and dipping and swaying and flying but in bands of colour.

Thereafter, I woke up many times with a poem in my head.

And unlike dreams that are forgotten soon after waking, these poems stayed with me for hours and I felt a compulsion to pen them down.

So here was the first poem I ever wrote (also on my post  Sometimes the heart sees ):

I see you in my dreams
In a cosmic dance that fuses my soul with yours eternally
In perfect symmetry and harmony
Spiralling through space and time, sometimes apart, 
Yet always together and never too far
There is no greater joy
For my dreams are truly my reality 
And loving you is my only destiny

Listen to Lara's Theme and imagine 2 bands of colour in a circus trapeze act together and then perhaps my poem will make more sense. 

Share your story of how you started writing or poetry or anything special for you. 

Happy Dreaming.

  1. It's so wonderful to have that, isn't it? It's like a gift..treasure it Suzy :)

    Random Thoughts Naba..Sepia Tones: Diwali & Shillong...

    1. Thanks Naba. I probably needed that push in the direction as I never would've done it on my own.

  2. how nice to be so inspired......

  3. What an inspiring story you have shared here, Suzy! It must have been quite a magical feeling to "receive" poems like that. What a blessing really! I am so happy for you. Stay blessed.

    1. Thanks Beloo. It was actually quite astonishing to suddenly have a poem in your head. Blessings to you too.

  4. Wow, this post reminds me of my blogger friend Elly Stornebrick's (she's on write tribe if you wish to check her blog) way of writing her blogs! She also gets inspired by dreams to write and intuitively words come to her. There's something very vibrant and mystical about your poem. Loved it!

    1. Thanks Vinodini. Yes I know Elly though I haven't visited her blog for a while. I love it when writing is intuitive. Glad you liked my poem.

  5. That first poem you ever wrote is amazing and poignant!

  6. that's wonderful feeling Suzy :D I have often woken up like that, feeling equally exilirated. It's as if in sleep I visited a different world. And even after waking up, the feeling of happiness lingers. :)
    Beautiful poem.

  7. What an amazing gift and a joy! It must be exhilarating when that happens! ♥

  8. You're a writer? Cool shoes. Me, too (kinda, sorta). I know for a fact, however, you gotta whole lotta intelligence behind those two ears, girl; thus, I wanna give you my finite existence: to intrinsically value the Great Beyond which I’ve learned to appreciate, to visualize the fundamental reality of infinity is why I‘m here for a teeny-weeny amount of time. Looky here...

    Precisely why I had our ‘philanthropic + epiphany’ (=so much to give + vision): wanna see a perfectly cognizant, fully-spectacular, Son-ripened-Heaven?? … yet, I’m not sure if we're on the same page if you saw what I saw. Greetings, earthling. Because I was an actual NDE on the outskirts of the Great Beyond at 15 yet wasn’t allowed in, lemme share with you what I actually know Seventh-Heaven’s Big-Bang’s gonna be like: meet this advanced, bombastic, ex-mortal Upstairs for the most extra-groovy-paradox, pleasure-beyond-measure, Ultra-Yummy-Reality-Addiction in the Great Beyond for a BIG-ol, kick-ass, party-hardy, robust-N-risqué-passion you DO NOT wanna miss the sink-your-teeth-in-the-smmmokin’-hot-deal enveloping, engulfing us. Cya soon, girl…
