Poems, Poems and more Poems
I've had a poem published at Moon Books http://moon-books.net/blogs/moonbooks/february-poems/ I'm so excited, daunted and more than a little dizzy .... this is the first step to getting more of my poems out there..
But, as I do, I got really doubtful that I would be any good, being honest when I read the other poems on there I felt like a fraud... there poems seemed so much longer and deeper than mine...
It wasn't until the lovely Tin explained that these other poets got up and got dressed by putting their pants on one leg at a time that I realised that I am more than capable!
I guess whenenver we start something new we wobble about being accepted and when you put a creative work out there it's like putting your head above the parapet waiting for someone to shoot the first arrow. I know that there are some that are going to hate my work - and you know what - it's ok......... I am ok with that ......everyone is different, everyone is unique and everyone has something of value to offer....but if we all liked the same things - gosh, wouldn't that be a boring world!
love and blessings to all
