Mindful poetry for artists and other gentle, sensitive and loving souls.
Where are you on this journey of self discovery?
What would it give you to have a tool which in a short and sweet way can help you find more answers?
How about if it is easy accessible, immediately useful and fun to bring to a circle of friends?
I want to share with you this way of writing exploratory poetry brought to my attention by a friend trained in the Expressive Art Therapy tradition. It has a fixed format composed by 11 words in 5 lines. Every single line has it´s purpose from start to end. In the pdf down below you can read more about the format and how to do it.
May the elephant be your companion on your journey. Kind, faithful and with loving eyes that sees beauty.
Ps When you have tried this out and find that you like it: Feel free to share with anyone!
Here is an example from an ordinary day in the studio.
Hesitant. Unexcited markmaking. Where are you going? Around in circles. Clueless.
Clueless. Interesting statement. What does that mean? Puzzle not complete. Yet.
Yet. Something expanding. What is happening now? Glimpses of hope. Inspiration.
