Poem: An Introduction to Me

This poem was written as part of a Creative Writing & Poetry Workshop run by Jackie Juno as This Earth Gathering 2018, the prompt was to write a poem to introduce ourselves to the group.

An Introduction to Me.

Hello, my name is Lizzie.

I’m a cat mother of two,

an introverted extrovert who

wants to be calm but who’s

mind is always crazily busy.

Look for me under oak trees

or buried in a reading nook

or singing onstage with my eyes closed

because I’m too afraid to look

as I strum away until I am happy.

I’ve got a head full of useless facts,

arms ever ready for in case of a hug emergency,

two feet made for wandering

and the eyesight of a bat.

So yes, I guess that’s me.
