Follow my blog with Bloglovin Hello! I have a pleasure to make it the first post ever published here. It should be special enough to deserve being called “a beginning”. Most likely it won’t be special, though, but that’s absolutely fine because starts aren’t always fantastic. We worship them like gods, but we forget the middle and the end also make a journey. Maybe even more, as it requires a lot of determination to carry on.
Anyway, what I decided to talk about today is poetry. Not only does it seem to fade away in our culture, but to make matters worse… it vanishes in us, people. What was the last time you read a poem? If recently – thumbs up for you, if not – don’t feel too ashamed, because most of us have been there. Not everyone enjoys poetry and it’s perfectly fine, but some people just haven’t tasted its lyrical texture, so they cannot judge it. Below I’ll share with you one of my favorite poems. Let me hope you will give it a chance, even the slightest one. Poets may be dead, but if they’re watching from above, maybe they will gift you with the sunniest and loveliest day you’ve ever had if you read one of their works.
The final thought: words are what makes us human, but it also can make us monsters. Let’s use it wisely. After all, even mermaids want to be human…
Have a lovely day,
