    Morning Channel

           I usually don’t editorialize my poems when I post them. But my writing coach, Anika Nailah and I are creating a workshop that will teach couples how to write poetry for each other. To facilitate that, I’m paying very close attention to my own poetic process so that I can pass on what I know in order to help others write from their heart.
           This poem literally wrote itself inside of me this morning as I awoke. Its seeds were planted in my subconscious, pre-cognitively, because before I was even aware of what I was thinking, the words were coming together to form sentences and phrases. I love when that happens.
           If we cultivate our awareness to what we’re feeling, thinking, and experiencing very first thing in the morning, we may surprise ourselves with how creative we are at that time of day. Solutions to problems or key insights may come to us like a lightning bolt. Ideas and phrases that may make a difference pop into us, as we float out of our subconscious and into our conscious mind.
           Next to your bed, keep a pen and pad of paper, or an iPad, or any device where you can readily jot down what comes to you. Make a habit out of taking notes on what you’re going through very first thing in the morning. Take advantage of these brief but powerful moments when you may experience yourself as a channel to some higher wisdom or creativity.

    I can

    Wipe away every tear you cry
    Hug away every doubt
    Caress away all your aches
    Kiss away every fear
    Love away all the pain you suffer

    I can

    Not because I’m so special

    But because you are
