Poetry Prompt - Reflection

Besides reading and writing poetry I have been studying how to write memoir. For me my poetry and my memoir go hand in hand, they both tell a story, they both dive into the darkness and pull out pieces of me.

As I look at the stories that make up my life I see again and again how everything is a reflection of what is going on inside of me; how the universe provides experiences for me to learn from as I maneuver through this life.
