I love this! Poetry holds a special place in my heart for me. It is so amazing and expressive and real! Poetry can bring us into a place of knowing within ourselves that is very surprising. I think it's wonderful that you had this experience. Creativity can be such a channel of self-learning and awareness. Thank you for sharing!
