Poetic Reflection Special Tribe: C. Sasmita

1. Tell us about yourself.
Actually I’m just an ordinary 21 years old person. I’m the first daughter and have two younger sisters. My father is lecturer at university so he wish me do the best on my academicals yet developing my right brain such as painting, cinematography, and writing nonfiction is a useless idea after all, so I studied physics at my campus and life seem flows very plain. Until I follow the theater club at campus in 2010th , I began develop my hobby especially in writing poem and short stories. I show my talent to Dad, until he bring me permission to progress what I love to do.
Now I'm poet who blog. I never feel so confidence to say I’m a poet until... Whooaa... Jingle Poetry is the first who found me! I’m so excited! I can meet and greet the other poet. They commented my poem and I learned a lot from them about a various form of poetry. Knowing people read my thought and feed it back is my highest honor.

2. Tell me about your blog, the name, what does it mean to you?

The same as I get everything I want to paint with words, finding my blog’s name “Journey to Eternity” just kinda revelation for me. As the intersection of births and deaths, which in essence similar, I'm a wanderer in life just only want the simple things, to make my self not be chagrined was born nor regret after death. I drowned in the process of life like everybody does, I started it with hurt, macabre and tragedy (what be the most characteristic in my poem), less romance, until I find enlightenment that change me a lot! Made me realize who truly my self, peoples around me, universe, and God (if you read my first post and compare it to the newest one, please tell me if you find any different sense). But don't you think I’m to young to think philosophically? Hahhaha... I’m proud of being this weirdness

3.When did you start blogging?

I started seriously to administer my blog in June 2011. I ever made a blog before but I forgot the password. :D

4.Your first poem? Remember?

I never ever forget my first poem in English that I write in Senior High School, titled

Shore let me know
Hollow of my deep dark soul
Let’s the eve with cursed wish
Trapped on tragedy
Furrow the light
In this everlasting night
Judas priest stare scarily
For the smile of bloody cheers

5.What are your writing inspirations?

My inspiration could be everything. But I never use them, wishing them to flow in my head by force because the inspiration came to me by itself. Actually what I had written does not belong to me entirely. I love to thinking about everything, dig in something into the deep, but I’ve never succeed satisfied my self with what I want to write. Until I find my self trance to bear what “something unknown” feel, what they want to express by using me, they choosing me the words. So, I believe every phrase and words have their spirits.

6. How do you define poetry as “Good”? Do you revise your work?

As long as the poem flows from feeling, and the reader can understand the meaning even with a simple word I define it “honesty in writing”. Is there anything more lovely than that? Indeed I revise my work since English is the language that I still learned for. I’m afraid there is any grammatical mistake in my poem. :)

7.When did you start writing poetry? Do you write fiction as well?

I started writing short story and novel from Junior High School especially for poetry I started write it in Senior High School but not really discipline.

8. Do you have a favorite author or poet?

Indeed! no author who could make me feel a strange sensation and palpitations by her writing except Barbara Cartland

9.Favorite quote?

“Everything is all for good” by revelation

10.Why do you support Jingle Poetry Community, including Jingle Poetry @ The Gooseberry Garden?

Of course I support Jingle Poetry Community. Because without Jingle, I can’t develop my skill in writing. It seems if Jingle didn’t find me by links, I will be “a poet who blogs but trapped in the box”. I do appreciate the motivation, comment and compliments among the poets so it motivates me a lot so I can be better and better.

11. What's your plan for your future writing?

I want published a book of my poem collection, if there is any fortune. But most of all I want to awaken the world by my words. Everyone would enjoy what is inside in my mind, and I will accept it as my precious honor.
