Welcome to Meet The Poet Wednesday where we get to meet one of the great poets who contribute to the Jingle Poetry community. This week we get to learn more about Lady Nimue!
Who is Lady Nimue?
A dreamer who thinks more than she does and writes more than she thinks she can! And if you want to know the real me , you can not unless you meet me
Tell me about your blog(s), about the name and what it means to you? When did you start blogging?
I started blogging last April and still blog at the same place – Pages from my mind [ladynimue.wordpress.com] I picked my name Nimue ‘cause I loved the story of “lady of lakes” and Nimue is one of her many used names in the Greek mythology. But there was no real reason to pick the blog name. This kind of was a brain wave if you can call it that ;)
I am also an author on blog “Its about random people [ireadintothings.wordpress.com ] which is about random people you observe and think in daily life. I did not create that blog but I am an invited writer there
Your first poem, do you remember it?
I am not sure but the oldest I remember was a poem “when” written for a poetry site. It was a competition to devise your own poetry form I guess. Its published on my blog I am sure!
Is there a style of writing you prefer? Do you write only poetry?
Free style , haiku , gogyohka ! I write form poetry or rhyming verses when free and set with a particular thought. Otherwise free verses are what you will find most in my blog. Writing a rhymed post is like a treat to myself!
Favorite poem you've written?
I forget about most of the poems I write. But recently I wrote about my mom. The poem was “visit by mother”. That’s something that I will never forget writing. Another poem I like is Zygote ! I love it just for the unique idea its written about . It was fun!
Inspirations! Where do you find them and what makes you comfortable writing?
Written words – specially by the bloggers I frequently read . So many times I have no clue what to write unless I read few poems .. And then I let my mind wander free to chase a muse. By god’s grace words do not let me down too often
Favorite books? Authors?
I read a lot of crime / mystery books ! And I never read romance . I have no favorites though. I cherish good books by any one!
If poetry was a color, which one would that be?
For me it would be Purple – royal , tempting , sensuous and yet evil too !!
If you could live in a book, which one would that be?
Make me Bella of Edward Collins !!!! Please !!!!!!! ;) Yes , that’s what I would love to have – a vampire boyfriend !!
Being part of Jingle community, what are the benefits?
You learn to appreciate the vastness that poetry promises you! Unless you read , you never can realize where ideas can lead you. Jingle not only is that wonderful platform but also a means to explore. This place has given me something to call my own place to be. A place with friends and like minded people who do not shy to show they care. I love this place and many of the people associated with this!
Any advice for people who would like to write poetry?
JUST WRITE WHAT YOU FEEL !!!! Do not fabricate things you are not comfortable writing about!
