    Thank you, Oscar. So I think you know how it is to feel a "flow". In german we call it to have a "flow". I hope in english, too. It means to fundirse con algo, olvidar todo lo que te rodea y quien eres. It sometimes happens to me when I am playing the piano or when I am drawing very concentrated. It is a really great feeling and makes your brain free from everything.

    Durante muchos años escribia canciones y se a lo que te refieres cuando lo relacionas con la meditación. Entras en una concentracion tan grande que es como si estuvieras en trance. Cambie la poesia por la prosa, pero no descarto volver a ella algun dia..... Me has hecho recordar, Katja. Gracias!

    Thank you @Deb Helfrich, Donna-Luisa Eversley and @Franci Eugenia Hoffman for your nice comments.
    For me reading poems is a pleasure, too. I love the poems of Pablo Neruda, Juan Ramon Jimenez and many others. Unfortunately in Germany it is not popular to read poems.

    One of my college crushes was simply because there was this guy who walked up and said : "Hi, my name is Dave, I am a poet." Well, you won't be surprised that he had little trouble pulling..... We worked together in the library and I got to watch this performance dozens and dozens of times. Makes me wonder if he's still doing it? But at the same time, I'd prefer to stay in the 80's and believe rather than find out via a quick google if it turned out differently.

    I can relate to this post. I love to write poems - some are silly, some show emotion, some rhyme and some don't. I like to relay a message in my poems or tell a story. In other words, I am all over the place with them. My favorite are haikus.

    I own a hive titled "I Started a Poem" where someone starts a poem and others finish it. In fact we have several bees that write poetry. Interesting post and I like your poem at the end. @Donna-Luisa Eversley @Ken Boddie @Deb Helfrich @debasish majumder @Chas Wyatt
