Full Title: Roy poet Lindy Blodgett finds purpose and faith in her poetry, and her clients agree (via The News Tribune)

“The brightest heavens of invention,” as Shakespeare called them, have shed their light in rural Roy.

In a cottage beneath a canopy of tall fir and cedar, Lindy Blodgett, 32, courts her Muse, combining poetry and prayer.

It’s a matter of the heart, and it has become a business.

Blodgett wrote her first “prayer-poem” last May.

“I wanted to write 100 days of prayer poems,” she said last week. “It was the way I processed the world for myself.”

She posted a few of her poems online.

“I wanted to share them,” she said. “My purpose was not to write for show, but to write prayers for my own life. I was aware that I had an audience, where before my only audience was God. Those prayers changed my life.”

Each day she asked herself: “What do I really want to say to God today?”
