Biography of Julie A Smith
I am a new fan of the poet Pablo Neruda, and an internet search for his poetry led me to poemhunter.com. I have always enjoyed both creative writing and inspirational writing. I am currently re-embracing my poetic side. My poetic bent leans to poems about love, rejection, heartache, and feelings of being constantly overlooked. I also enjoy writing about faith, hope, and God. I believe in love even though I have not been very successful at it. I am a modern poet with an old-school flavor. I embrace words such as “thus” and “ado” and “lament.” Medieval times, the world of knights, castles, and chivalry have a mystical allure to me, and a piece of my heart may forever remain in Scotland. What else? I am a Christian, and that faith foundation greatly influences my poetry. My gender also is influential in my writings, as well as my Sociological and Counseling background. Personality-wise, I am a sensitive and tender-hearted individual. I was extremely shy as a child, but now I am a friendly and people-oriented woman who occassionally needs alone time to unwind, ponder, and be introspective.
I am currently experimenting with different poetic styles. I enjoy free verse and utilize that style more often than rhyming poetry. I like to tell a story in my poetry or deal with matters of the heart. I also enjoy utilizing personification and repetition of keywords. While grammar is unfortunately not my forte, I want to clarify that in a few of my poems I have purposefully utilized more informal expressions or slang terms heard in popular society, such as gotta. I want to broaden my poetic range and have my poetry be more universal, inclusive, and relevant.
I have recently been pondering about taking a creative writing class in poetry or fiction writing, and I have searched online and looked at numerous college courses and writing programs. It would be beneficial to receive more training and instruction in order to further develop my writing.

New Year, New You
A new year full of promise and secret dreams. A new year, a fresh start, and hidden deep waters. The dazzle of potential is blinding. The beauty of a clean slate

Love. Ambiguously messy.

Grateful (God is my rock)
You gave me peace last night when I was home late,
So Not Perfect
Just heard a song on the radio
a girl singing about a boy
who is not less than perfect.
Got me think'n bout
how I am
so not perfect.
Course none of us like
to have that truth pointed out.
