In my poetry, I am inspiration that manifests thoughts of love…
I am breath that conveys the will. I am the action that effects change. I am the touch that provides healing. I am that which had been written before thoughts began, and came into being when all was meant to be. I am beauty that exists in all that is the creation of the word. I am Living Poetry!
Today, as my first collection of poems, Living Poetry: Perceptions of a Goddess, is being released into the world, I am happy to share with you a little peek into its contents, by unveiling the first poem:
by Sonja Phillips Hollie
Like the breathing of Spring and the lust of dying words in the fall:
are seasons to everything and its in my words,
ingrained as our time
leaving behind a part of me
So that you may live in eternal suns,
long after i am gone,
for you are my destiny.
It is me the poet and the goddess
that shall paint my roots on the Autumn rains
In the precious truth of thee
I start what was always me
As Living Poetry!
