floats softly down
on golden sunlit wings.
whispered into pain
makes the darkness sing.
when held tightly
is no small thing.

What triggers you? What moments are remembered? What memories linger?

We all need some form of therapy (or call it escape if you like) from the craziness of our lives. Two of my favorites are riding my mountain bike and writing.
I love getting out into nature and just pedaling away from my stress. I also love writing; stories, poetry, it doesn’t really matter. I find both cathartic in very different ways.
I also find therapy in my faith, in music, in drawing and painting, in family and friends (at least some of them :) ), and not to forget coffee and chocolate!
What works as therapy for you?

Another great guest post from one of the members of my work creative writing group. In response to my challenge to them to write a poem of 10 lines in which each line must contain the word love. Thank you Darren, great job! Hope my readers have enjoyed reading some other writers for a change. :)
