Changing Your World Through Poetry
Writing is my main path to understanding my inner self and creating the world I want to live in. I have discovered that writing poetry has been, and is, how I heal the past so that I can be in the present; putting words to the page, saying things that I can’t say anywhere else, allows me to get it out for me to be able to move past it and manifest my desires.
I have had many challenges in my life, some I am still working through, but being able to use my words has been life changing for me. Growing up as a child in a household where we were ‘to be seen and not heard’ had a great influence on my voice and being afraid to use it.
You can write poetry as a means – of communicating with the world, of understanding yourself, for processing information, for letting go of the past, and even for finding your own voice as I have.
Writing Wild Woman Waking has allowed me to not only use my voice but awaken to the reality that I am in the world of my own making. It is up to me to make a difference and write myself into the world of my choosing.
Wild Woman Waking Book Launch!
Tui Snider and I combined our talents for this book, her artistic photography mixed with my poetic ramblings creates a unique journey indeed.
Description on Amazon
What part of you have you suppressed, keeping it buried so deep inside that you almost forgot what is most important to you? Almost. As you read the poetic ramblings something stirs inside, your foot starts to tap, and you can hardly sit still. Maybe you turn on some music and dance into this new feeling, moving your hips as thoughts roam your head.
From Wild Woman Waking:
“broken smiles surrounding you
listening to ghostly secrets
desires of the heart
prisoner to your life
woman wake up and dance”
You grab your notebook and pen and begin to write. You realize you can’t sit still anymore because your eyes are wide open. Wild Woman Waking will have you looking at things differently and hopefully taking action for yourself.
Wild Woman Waking: “Sleeping isn’t possible once you explore the inner and outer world of poetry; transformation happens and your eyes open wide.”
If you grew up trying to be what other’s wanted and never sure who you really were or are, now you can choose to live and embrace your inner wild woman and maybe you will be inspired to write poetry of your own! Check out Wild Woman Waking!
This is a blog hop!
From March 10th through March 22nd there will be a blogger interviewing, reviewing, and guest posting for Wild Woman Waking! Every one of these women are amazing in their own right! I can’t help but smile and feel such admiration when looking at all of their lovely faces! Check them out and spread the word of the fun happening here and there!

During the month of March for Women’s History Month you and I can help in making sure the women fighting for our rights and not allowing our rights to be taken away again, and continue to help bring equality for all women – I will donate $1.00 for every full priced purchase of my ebooks, Dancing within Shadow and Wild Woman Waking, from the royalties to Feminist.com. Now don’t let that name scare you off. Feminism has been given a bad rap over the years but basically they are there to help women live complete and full lives with all the rights that are entitled to every human being. Check out their website to see more of the wonderful things they do to help women everywhere.
ABOUT THE CREATORS
Morgan Dragonwillow is a shadow poet and recovering perfectionist that strives to inspire other poets and writers. She especially enjoys helping those that have had trouble letting go of the fear holding back their words from landing on the page. It thrills her to her marrow when her words inspire someone to write; it is one of her greatest joys. Morgan released her first poetry book, Dancing within Shadow, in March 2013. She is intimate with shadow and dances into the heart of it. She believes that diving into what most people try to avoid makes great fertilizer for all types of creativity, especially writing and poetry. She writes poetry to be able to say things, feel things that she can’t seem to express or feel anywhere else. Morgan lives in Marietta Ga. with her partner, their Pekinese, and their long haired Tabby. She loves creating of all kinds but words are her passion. You can connect with Morgan from the links below.
