Double Def

Last night I watched a double helping of Def Poetry. I really appreciate that show and showcase of talent it brings to alllll of America. The use of words and phrases and ideas and thoughts are amazing.
The past two years, I've been privileged enough to attend all of the tapings that take place at the Supper Club in NYC. This year, though, I didn't attend due to travel. And you know what? Watching the shows on television adds something for me...maybe I'm paying attention more because I'm seeing them for the first time. Maybe being there for every single taping serves as a detriment and causes you to mentally drift after the first hour of poems.
Whatever the case, the words, the phrases, the similes, the metaphors, the verbs, the nouns...all sounded fresh last night and made me appreciate what these artists were trying to say. Made me take pen to paper right after the show to put down some thoughts that had been blocked inside my heart. They're out now. Finally. And I believe its because of that creative nudge.
Last night, what I watched was on point. Refreshing. Inspiring.
It was Def-initely what I needed.

Mind Droppings

I write entirely to find out what I'm thinking, what I'm looking at, what I see and what it means. What I want and what I fear. (Joan Didion)
