“The Vibe”

Hey, there beautiful people. I don’t know about you guys, but there is a certain way this girl writes poetry. I call it, “The Vibe”. I personally don’t like to write assigned poetry. I really suck at it. For example, write me a poem about a little yellow bird. Yeah, can’t do it, lol. However, I don’t knock it either. I’ve read some great poems written that had a subject matter assigned to them. The people that have that talent are truly awesome. But for me to pick up the pen, there has to be a “vibe” to it. Every time I have ever tried to write a poem with an assigned subject it was an epic fail. My all wasn’t put into it. So, I write when the vibe comes. And if it just so happens, that it falls into the assigned subject it’s a win-win. I just have to have the “vibe”. If you are like me then you always have a handy dandy notebook and pen hidden somewhere on your person when the vibe comes.

So, what is the vibe? Well, the vibe is the inspiration. It’s the feeling that you get when you see a photo, a person or even hear a word. It triggers something in you. Whether that feeling is from pain or joy. You get this feeling in your gut. Sometimes it’s an ah-ha moment. It may make the hairs on your arms stand up. Tears may find themselves leaving tracks on your face, and anger may cause your nostrils to flare, so you write.

The Vibe is a dance with language. It’s the tango with metaphors and the cha-cha slide with stanzas. Its a waltz with a haiku and a 2 step dance battle with the spoken word. Yesss! It’s “The Vibe”.

Have you ever had that vibe broken? Whew… it can be the worse. Can you say, “flow wrecked”? You lose that rhythm and the poem seems to lose its passion. If “The Vibe” can be described in a better way, it would be PASSION! Can we get a do not interrupt the vibe sign to tape on our foreheads, lol? I’m laughing but being a karate mom and a wife I need one.

The vibe has a rhythm of its own. If you’re are not careful you may dance with two left feet and that’s not good for the lines on the page. I find that when I stay in rhythm with the vibe my poetry is not idle. It heals and provides an increase that subject driven poetry doesn’t bring for me. I imagine that the greatest poets also let their pens dance to the rhythm of “The Vibe”.

What’s your favorite poetry writing style?
