The name of my blog reflects what I am doing by making it. Showing my colours.
There is a certain vulnerability in exposing your true self. That is, your feelings, beliefs, perceptions. Stuff that can’t be seen on the surface and that can only be accessed by you if you chose to explore it. In this there is a risk of criticism, of disapproval.
Publishing my poetry leaves me nowhere to hide. Kind of like on The Voice where they say that the singer has no dance moves or fancy attire to hide behind. It’s just them standing in front of the audience using their voice.
So this is me. Stepping out of the comfort and security of my life. A sort of metamorphosis.
I encourage others to show their colours too.
