Note to reader: I was using this space and place to post parts of a new slip-fiction novel series I am working on, Left Brain Right, the story of a young girl who hears voices. However, writing and teaching do not aways coincide, so until summer comes once more, I am going to be posting short poems. Thank you for your understanding. More from the actual story will be coming summer of 2017. These are still first rough drafts, so there may be spelling and/or grammatical errors.

How today’s poem can help you:

Theme: Our internal world places a filter upon and shapes our external world.

Left Brain Right

Right-brain people struggle
in a world that seems made
for those who are left-brained,
but I try.

I see value
in details
in measurements
in buildings that don’t fall down,

but I’m a whole-picture person
a child at heart,
with a wild imagination
and spirit vision.

I see beyond borders
of this physical world,
and there,
I am free.
