The Gift of Being — A Poem


And how it came about

The gift of Being
Opens my eyes, I’m seeing.
There’s deeper meaning.
I sit meditating, dreaming.

This poem came about as a need to open to creative thought. I was applying for a Master’s degree program at MIU (Maharishi International University) and I had to write my thoughts and point of view on an abstract topic, consciousness. I spend most of my day in the IT data-driven world and poetry seems to help me find my voice from the other part of my brain. :) So there you have it! Short, simple, sweet…

Do you use poetry to tap into your creative side for something other than writing the poem itself? If so, do share!

And thanks for reading. I hope it’s inspiring in some way.
