Sounds like my journey, Kathy. I wrote poetry through high school, stopped, then wrote a few romantic poems for my then husband. Stopped again. Became a prolific letter/email writer for my employers. Did not start writing creatively again until November 2016 when I discovered Medium. Was sure my niche was anything EXCEPT poetry but the majority of my recommends and comments are for the poetry that I slowly started writing on Medium. Maybe we are poets, Kathy!
