A 2nd letter from Secrets (ST)

I know, gasp, a second letter. You can blame Manish Abburu at The Positivity Journal, because he nominated me for the Vincent Ehindro Blogger Award. His piece called Neuroplasticity is particularly interesting. Thank you Manish Abburu, I am honoured that you would think of me.

Here is my response (in my own way) and I hope you will not be disappointed. I thought I would quickly explain the thoughts behind one of my recent pieces, To Read You. I hope my faithfully true ‘followers’ enjoy.

I was reading a beautiful poem by another blogger (who shall remain nameless) and I was so touched by it. I think I read it about ten times, each time finding something new to admire and understand. Perhaps I fell in love with their words just a little bit, but I was mostly blown away by their craft and just had to write out my secret thoughts – I know/hope that this part is clear to you 😜.

Now as a poet (I still hesitate to call myself that), I wanted to evoke deeper emotions in the reader other than admiration. Hence I added a romantic layer in the last stanza and sprinkled a bit throughout. Yes, if you didn’t already know, I have mixed fact and fiction in this one and I hope that by knowing this you aren’t disappointed. I will often add passion or desire when teasing out my thoughts, because it makes life more exciting and beautiful don’t you think? But perhaps it is better to remain charming and mysterious and not tell you these things. I’m unsure, I’ll leave it to you to guide me.

And that
is all
you get.

-Secrets or ST πŸ’œ

Full disclosure, I feel awkward publishing this. Do you even care about my creative process? πŸ€” I’m still trying to work out how to honour award nominations and stay true to who I am 😊 Responding in my own voice is where I have landed atm. Please be patient with me as I find my way and extend me grace if I change my mind πŸ™

    1. I am actually embarrassed and blushing behind this screen… What have I done πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Note to self, never tell your gal pal about a poem you are crushing on. I say poem, not poet (just to be clear) 😏 Let’s be honest though, I would be exactly the same… I’d be looking everywhere! PS – I don’t know if I’ve told you today how much I adore and treasure you 😍🀣😘

      1. Lol I did a couple of peeks just then but it just all felt to pervy and I have so many friends’ posts to read I don’t know if I can fully follow through with my own threat. πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜† So don’t worry your not-so-secret secret’s still safe from me. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Thank you for the adoring and the treasuring, it’s a true giftie to read, and the feeling is very mutual. Cheers to good gal pals indeed. πŸ‘―β€β™‚οΈπŸ‘―β€β™‚οΈπŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ₯‚βœ¨πŸ΅
