How to Fill Your Day with Poetry

A Writer's Path

by Cassandra Key 

The easiest way to fill your day with poetry is to notice what poetry is and then surround yourself with it.

Poetry is a lot of things and goes beyond words on paper. It is nature and love and pain. It is Mary Cassatt’s Summertime” and dancing to Chopin. It is dreams and prayers and moonlight. It is all of these things coming together to create something that stirs the heart.

​Or as Emily Dickinson said:

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

So you see, poetry is already all around you – the only thing you must do is notice it, and if you’d like, capture it.
