Hi, I'm The Cornered Poet, stuck away here in this God forsaken corner of the Blogosphere ;-)
My name is Doug McMillan, Born in London, UK, in 1958, there are three things that truly 'move' me. They are Self-Knowledge, Writing and Poetry. When I combine all three I find myself in my 'Element'. And when one is in one's element 'time' takes on a different quality, two things happen simultaneously; time quite literally seems to Stand Still, but . . .
. . . also, Time Flies. What a wonderful paradox!
My father introduced me to Yoga and Meditation when I was only 13 years old, which had a profound effect on my life. I had the direct experience of the awakening of the Kundalini Shakti, the divine Life energy, although at the time I had no idea what was happening to me. Gradually, over many years of the awakening of my consciousness, along with a life time of personal study and investigation, a new state of awareness and perception has been unfolding from within.
I love to be creative with words. I've written a couple of unpublished manuscripts on the subject of self-knowledge, and I write limericks and poetry and a little comedy involving obvious forms of humour such as Puns.
Why Poetry? Because I'm moved to write in that format, although it is not always what some would class as real poetry, whatever that is, ha, ha? Sometimes my words may 'Jar'...may not flow, and are often very 'Quirky'; I write what I'm moved to write, and in so doing there is no right or wrong about it!
This is The Cornered Poet signing off!
