Michael and I are delighted to welcome blogger and writer, Brad Volz, to robbiesinspiration today
Brad Volz has a most interesting blog called Writing to Freedom. He writes a variety of lovely poems, including haikus, and he also has a series entitled Awesome Stories where he shares all sorts of amazing accomplishments by various people in the area of saving Earth from negative human interventions.
Brad has recently started a series called Soulful Sunday the purpose of which is to share poems, musing and thoughts that feed our souls.
I am sharing the following poem by Brad today:
A season of love
lush petals dripping
awakening hungry senses
a convoy of enticing aromas
wafting through my body
the goddess of romance beckons
with trepidation, I heed the siren call
venturing forth in a season of love
Brad’s beautiful poems are always accompanied by the most outstanding floral photographs.
Tell us a bit about yourself
I’m a man who has never really found his direction in life. I live a simple life of work, time in nature, friends, food, reading, and writing. I blog as a venue for inspiring and connecting with others. My passions are being in nature, heartfelt communication, and photography. I write because it’s a way to share the feelings I have in nature and I’ve grown to love the connections with people around the world.
It sounds like you do have direction, Brad, and have elected your chosen path in life. I must say it does sound like you made a good choice.
Who is your favourite poet?
I love Rumi and Mary Oliver. Rumi clearly had an estatic relationship with life and spirit, and Mary’s poetry often touches deep feelings of awe, wonder, and love for nature.
What do you appreciate the most in a poem?
I like poems that evoke deep feelings, especially ones that uplift or help bring me back to my true nature.
I like that type of poetry too, Brad.
Why do you write poetry?
Why do you write poetry. I write poetry in an attempt to uplift others, and share my essential nature and love for nature.
Wanting to uplift others is a great reason to write, Brad.
