and so i am in full throttle again. with blogging and with poetry. opening an account here at blogspot did wonders to my already drying creative juices. the last time i really had one heluva ride writing poems, was about seven years ago. for some reason the emo in me died down a bit; i dunno, life became a little pleasant, i guess. so having no resource to tap into, i stopped writing altogether. about 3 years ago i did a handful cheesy ones (guess why, hehehe), with just one poem standing out from that year's crop. what made that period worth mentioning was it sort of became a bridge to whatever renaissance i am having now, in terms of developing a writing style.
and now i'm back. i love it that i was able to have an online stash of compositions tucked away somewhere; so when the time came that i moved here at blogspot, i just copied and pasted (here)--easy as one two three. i must confess though that i'm not really schooled when it comes to poetry. i just read works by other writers; search my own emotions, and write what i feel and think. its good they have free verse nowadays for i dunno how my writing will end up if you made me write in metered form, hehehe. (i made one attempt, but i dont think there will be a follow-up to that in the near future... very, very taxing!)
so there. the whole of gentle, for now.
