An Opportunity For Self-Reflection
Posted by Literary Titan
Embody is a collection of thought-provoking poetry organized in the form of the seven chakras. What inspires you to write poetry?
Everything and anything, ranging from tea to goddesses. I don’t know when, where, or under what circumstances I will get the call to write poetry. It just comes and I heed the call, no matter the time of day, where I am, or what I am doing. Of course, I won’t do it when I’m driving, but as soon as I can, I write it down, and I do so on notebooks, scraps of paper, on my phone, or whatever I find at hand. I can get inspired from what I am streaming, what I read, something outside my window, a conversation, an event, or anything that stirs my thoughts and emotions.
My favorite poem from this collection is ‘Security’. Do you have a favorite poem from this collection?
That’s an interesting question because there are many poems that have evoked quite strong feelings in me, given what was happening at the time I wrote them. Those are my favorites. One such example is “How I Feel.” I wrote it after realizing that I didn’t make an effort to connect with my emotions. Interestingly, writing poetry opened up that door for me—that of being in touch with my feelings.
What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this collection?
Writing this collection of poetry was an opportunity for self-reflection and introspection. Embody was about being in touch with myself, being present with what was happening in the moment and how that felt in my being. We don’t often take the time to pause, be still, and be ok with whatever is going on—whether it is positive or negative—and do so without judgment. Writing this collection of poetry was a chance for me to be at peace with where I was and what was happening, and allow whatever needed to come up to rise.
What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?
There are two more books of poetry that are in the works that will follow Embody. These are Embrace and Embolden. They follow the next steps of the emotional journey, which for me was acceptance and then finding a way forward. These will be available soon.
