An interview with me at Poets United

Do you write poetry or do you enjoy reading it?
If so please consider checking out -
Poets United
A community & Blogroll for poets who blog

It is a newish but very friendly community set up with lots of energy and enthusiasm by Robert Lloyd. It is quickly growing in size and has introduced new features such as weekly poetry prompts, a poem of the week and poetry blog of the week too.

I was lucky enough to be invited by Robert to join at the very beginning and have enjoyed seeing it quickly becoming a great hub for people who enjoy writing.

This week I was featured in their ongoing Life of a Poet Series

You can read the interview with me, here . . .

The Life Of A Poet - Susannah Bec.

Check it out and why not join up too!

I am sure Robert would make you very welcome. :-)

Inside My Skin

Defined by my own borders, I exist within.

My emotions are vast oceans, rushing rivers, trickling streams, irrigating my being with their cold wet life.

I cross continents with my thoughts, huge landscapes sculpted by my inner nature. The rocks and crevices erupt from my centre, fashioned by tears, carved by the movement of my breath.

These fertile plains were once barren, dry dust bowls devoid of life. The only world I knew existed outside of my skin, these inner lands lay forgotten, unexplored.

Now flower filled meadows are created by my laughter, trees spring up from verdant valleys seeded by hope. My joy is bird song filling the air.

. . . and when night falls and the sky is black as velvet, the stars are my dreams, waiting for me to join them in their dance of becoming.
