Cheers for the heads up for Bridget’s work.
I have to disagree with you though. To me using everyday words allows those that don’t use the more poetic/creative words poets do, to be able to relate. Give them an introduction to poetry…a gateway to not feel intimidated by the craft.
To me a broader reach is given through the everyday word.
Not to discount the amazing works of creative words…not so ever. I aspire to be able to craft words as they do. They paint images that are beyond my words. And I love them dearly.
Each has their way and audience to be receptive.
Keep being the ever-growing you. You are amazing.
I love your poems.
