As everyone knows, I’m a huge Mary Lambert fan. Her music is poetry, but her poetry is so transcendent and beautiful I just want to bathe in a ceramic tub full of it. She’s also a wonderful lady, and I want to share her poetry blog with you! Every week, she does different themed days and shares poetry she receives in the form of submissions, and some of the poems I’ve found there have been amazing inspiration. For example, a poem from today’s post:
‘You know, if you hurl clay with the right velocity at a cement pavement, it sounds almost delicate.
The blue mosaic pot that you made during the summer you said I need to keep busy.
You’d said, I’m recreating the ocean, in concentration your tongue curling like a wave over your lip.
Cyan and azure and aquamarine and deep, black-blue.
Palms scratched and running red rivers.
The red sea parting.
I had always been a horrible swimmer.
Après moi, le déluge.'”
She also shares some of her own poems, which are heartbreaking but always poignant. If you’re ever in need of inspiration, give her blog a looksie!
