telling stories through poetry & personal reflections
Author: Sierra V. Fedorko
I am a Storytelling Poet. . .bringing you personal pieces, cautionary tales, raw life, and hope. Every week, I write + share poems about the stories we have all lived. I am also a Gardener + Wife, Mom, & Happy About It All. Founder of Birthday Observation Day. Biggest celebrator of life. Goats & chickens 4EVER (obviously). So, hello & welcome to the blog. And the garden. And the podcast. And the uncomplicated poetry that brings us all together -S.V.F.
Yesterday was the first time since May 14, 2021 that I posted a poem on my instagram feed and on the blog. And I am proud of myself! As we head into a summer of poetry (and my podcast where I’ll share BTS of my poems), I’m hoping to infuse humor, lightheartedness, and a real sense of freedom to enjoy what is working well in our lives.
Of course, I don’t believe in ignoring pain and you’ve read enough of my poetry to know that(!!), but I’m also exhuasted by the doomsday approach oversaturated in poetry. Maybe you are, too? I don’t know, but I think we need to laugh a little more. Notice the good things right in front of us. Let the happy things be happy. Be silly.
So, here’s to a summer of honing my craft, reminding you of the lighter stuff, making you smile and laugh, and giveing words to the good(!!) stories you’re living. I hope you fall in love with this humorous + lighter aproach to poetry.
I post the first of the summer poems on my blog tomorrow, but (inside scoop), I already posted it on my instagram, @sierravfpoetry!
If you are happy, you do not need to tell us you still struggle with pain and hard things.
And we are here for your happiness!! Share it unapologetically. Let happy things be happy things.
I’m dusting off the podcast soon!⭐🎙🎉
After letting it go in my third trimester of pregnancy in May 2020, I picked it up again the following November, but changed the whole feel to be
2) Super laid-back.
For now, this is the way I can say YES to podcasting (something people have really enjoyed👏) without saying no to more important things in my life. Also, I love being laid-back. Pressure is off!!
All that said, I recorded an update on Wednesday this week! Which was a surprise even to me.😅 I mean, I’ve been planning to podcast again and before really getting into a series or season, I’d HAVE to do an update since it’s been a few months! And on Wednesday, I thought, “How about now? Let’s do it.”
So I did.
And it literally feels like a chat over coffee.☕ I’m not BACK to everything as usual yet, but I am popping in.🎉 So that’s a long way of saying, there’s 20 minutes of #JoyRightHere waiting for you wherever you best love your podcasts!😍
