:) I agree with all yours listed, they are all such good choices! Except I can't swim πŸ˜‚ but still thank you so much for sharing with me. Hugs to you!

HopeWithSmile in reply to Hidden

Oh, I can't recommend swimming enough! I was absolutely terrified of water, so I had a huge fight with this fear and eventually prevailed.

There's nothing more calming than just floating on your back. Closing your eyes, listening to the sea and to your breathing.... I always wish I lived by the sea....

What makes me happy:

Reading and writing poetry

Listening to music, singing and dancing badly

Movies/Television/Videos/Books

Some PC and board games

Kindness and companionship

Waking up from a restful sleep; going for a rare walk

Daydreaming, making future plans, then realizing what I imagine

Getting to know people and letting people get to know me

Self-talk, reading aloud (esp. poetry)

Thinking of my cat

I love and write poetry too!!

mrmonk
mrmonk in reply to Hidden

Wonderful, isn't it? For me, it's my center -- I couldn't imagine my life without it. Are there any favorite poems/poets you enjoy reading?

Hidden
Hidden in reply to mrmonk

I love it all. Robert Frost, Maya Angelou, even song lyrics are poetry to me like Korn and Linkin Park,such tortured souls.

I write some really dark ones and also ones to my baby, husband, mil and fil, also one to my son about being a stepmom. I have some published too in a book called Little Boy Blue, poetry from survivors of sexual abuse.

What do you write?

mrmonk
mrmonk in reply to Hidden

Though I have my favorite poets, like Sir John Betjeman (whose portrait serves as my avatar), I love discovering new poets, and there are so many to find online (including all the great songs)...even right here in the HealthUnlocked forums! I'll definitely see if I can find a copy of Little Boy Blue -- it's so important that voices like yours have sung out from the depths of such trauma.

For myself, I can only really say that every poem I write is different. Like you, I have written some poems that spoke directly to friends and family. But, to me, writing poetry is all about preserving and animating feelings/emotions in sounds that are particular to verse. Ultimately, it's an art of self-preservation.

It's hard to like what I know I like so maybe writing it will help me remember what makes me happy.
