Poetry Heals.

Like gushing stream water,

poetry surges through my

soul creating patterns

intricately woven and

styled with a kaleidoscope

of colors forming a warm

tapestry of memories that

take me on the magic

carpet of history, down

past millenniums.


Poetry is therapeutic for

my troubled mind, a

sedative to my haunted

soul, fuel for my broken

spirit and comfort food

for this ethereal body

with its café au lait du


My escape from the

hateful world, my own

island of bliss when the

blues creep in.

Soothing words are laid

out with overflowing

adjectives, warm nouns

and verbs wander

freely across pages making

me soar to greater heights.


Poetry is a great catharsis

for healing because of its

aesthetic properties and

evocative language.

Poetry’s caress creates

an emotional response with

the flow of words

meticulously knit together

as units of expression as

the pen swirls, doing the

belly dance across the

paper, provoking thoughts,

and feelings, raising questions,

providing answers in a mind

stimulating process through

a fulfilling healing journey.

I am an African woman and a mother to a precious little angel. I love to use the term "Afro-floetic Queen" mostly to describe my poetry and my roots. I love poetry...art, soul music and inspirational bits of knowledge to offer advice and counseling to those who need it. I can be very witty, straight forward but fun. Ha. ha... A colorful perception of the world - expressed in my poetry. I want to inspire people with my Poetry...give them hope, while also advising them. Life is a learning process and i am happy when one of my pieces directly affects or inspires one of my readers. Let's take a detour around experience, and let me fill your minds with sweet poetic juices.... Note: Just changed my user name from FloetryC to AfroetryC because the latter is more personal and describes my Spoken Word Poetry better.

  1. Great poem about poetry 🙂 Love how smoothly your words seem to flow, no flashy words here simply for the sake of showing off, but all extremely well chosen and all very effective in communicating how influential this medium can be for those of us who find solace in hearing, reading, and writing it. Thank you for sharing.
