Free flow poetry. Let go of reality. (via The arts webshow)

I posted this earlier today, I have been thinking all day about the experience of free flow poetry. Because this has been playing on my mind all day I thought it needs a full reblog. I have added the poem I wrote while listening to the music suggested at the end of this post.

I would also like to say thank you to Richard North for sharing this on his blog… The arts webshow

Free flow poetry. Let go of reality.

Quantcast

.

I have a challenge for you.

I want everybody to attempt this.

And i mean everybody, even you.

.

Please don’t dismiss it.

I wouldn’t be encouraging you if i didn’t think it was worth it

.

Open this song in another window

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4AvP1atLBuo

Open up a post and put your keyboard in your lap.

GET COMFORTABLE

Start the video

Close your eyes and feel your keys.

If you cant type with your eyes closed, then look at the keys but do not look at the screen.

And to be safe do it all in lower case

Then type anything, but type to the beat

Do not think ,do not look , just let it flow.

After the song is over look at your words, there will be lots of spelling mistakes, you may correct them but do not edit it.

And PLEASE post the result.

If you do and you comment over the link , i will check it out

If you don’t have a blog, type it into a comment on my post, correct it and post.

.

It’s called free flow poetry.

The most beautiful form there is.

Trust me if you let go your instincts will NOT let you down.

But you have to let go

.

PLEASE PLEASE have a go.

Spread it and share it, tag people any way you can.

This is an idea that gets right down deep into your heart and mind.

You speak directly from your soul.

AWaken the sleeping artist in you.

Bend the rules.

Believe totally in yourself

Be a work of ART

Feel the Beat

by Lisa Lock

I’m paused…… not knowing

who am I…. or where I’m going.

In this life

We have crap thrown at us

From left and right

……… all good

If we take the challenge

……that is life.

Listen to the music.

Is it playing your beat?

Time is a healer

…….or so we’re told

Can’t see the answers

To my questions unfold.

Playing in a garden

Of imagination

Is there any time

To change

Feel the beat

As it runs

Through the essence of being

Feel the beat

What am I seeing

Feel the beat

Or….

Go with the flow

    You completely captured the essence of what it’s about.
    Excellent

  2. Lisa,

    Thank you so much for commenting on my blog last night. I was starting to feel better after I got some of that out but then when I read your comment and I REALLY felt some peace! So I went to your links and thought this was a great idea to try. When I listened to this song here is what came out:

    Finding my calm

    Safely rushing to the sounds that sooth.

    I want to run!

    I can’t make it stop!

    Slow down.

    Stop.

    Looking back.

    Running toward the calm.

    Stirring in me a silence that I seem to never have.

    Is this possible?

    Spinning in my mind.

    Stop.

    Waves crashing over me.

    Cleansing me.

    Wash over me.

    Calming.

    Not I can’t!

    Run!

    Stop!

    Jolting through me the surges of peace.

    Mind fighting.

    NO more distractions.

    I am walking on waves as they surround me.

    I am still short on words today but I think this helped and I think if I do this more often it can give me some balance. Thank you so much!

    I am very good at virtual ((((((((hugs))))))), so there are some for you. 🙂
    Lots of love! Angel
