I used to write a lot of poetry, and for some reason, I stopped many years ago. Yesterday I posted an old poem of mine in response to a poetry challenge by @zen-art.

It felt good, and it was good to look back on some of what I had written in the past.

These last few weeks since Ren and I found this community has been amazing. We used to struggle to put out one post a week, only to have it disappear without a ripple. Now we post multiple times a day, and we receive so much encouragement and appreciation. I haven’t felt this creative in years.

I’ve missed it.

Tonight, with some gentle encouragement from @maquemali I have written my first new poem in, I think, 15 years.

Having broken the rule that the introduction should not be longer than the poem, Here it is. It is in the form of a Triolet

Star-Filled Sky

As I stand beneath the star-filled sky at night.
My spirit is renewed with joy and awe.
I scarcely can contain my heart’s delight.
As I stand beneath the star-filled sky at night
Lifted to the heavens by starlight.
Transformed by the wonder of it all.
As I stand beneath the star-filled sky at night.
My spirit is renewed with joy and awe.
