I haven’t picked a theme yet, but simultaneously now I have.
Discovery as a theme has a broad context. You can either think a lot into it or a little as you would like to. Which is nice.
There is this beauty to discovery, it can be a really great thing. Or not. Really, it’s ones own preference.
What is important is that we are all beings. We come from something else. We may not know our origins, or even who we are. What makes us all alike is that we all go on this journey of discovery. We want to find ourselves. Or we want to lose ourselves. Maybe both.
My goal with this theme when I’m writing these poems/ short fiction is to not think about it. I want it to be real. Not created. If a sentence is going to come, then it should come naturally. If only a word comes, then good I have done my creative thinking.
That is what discovery is. Finding life along the way.
