Finally I am making myself get out there, doing massage therapy again, chatting with friends, making new friends, taking workshops and planning to facilitate workshops. Oh, and taking care of my new fish aquarium with platies, black mystery snails, and ghost shrimp, and taking care of our two new hermit crabs.
I can finally breathe again. I am writing again, the words have been flowing to the page. Poetry has come back into my life.
I have taken to the habit of keeping my poetry magnets next to my laptop as there tends to be a lag going from page to page. If I play with my magnets it gives me two benefits, one being of course creating poetry. The other, it helps keep me relaxed instead of frustrated. That's how I created the poem above, though I used the magnetic words to inspire this piece instead of it being all magnets.
Below is a short poem I actually created with the magnets.
Life ebbs and flows and thank goodness it is flowing again.
Check out the OctPoWriMo Countdown!
Row80 Check in:
Writing at least a poem a day.
Writing at least 500 a day on, A Poet's Life. Yes, it has the same title as this post. It seems it wants to be a whole lot more than a post. We'll see what becomes of it.
It is also that time of year again when I'm prepping for OctPoWriMo: 31 Poems in 31 Days. I'm writing the daily countdown posts and I'm coordinating the volunteers for October's posts.
Yeah, it kind of sounds like a lot but I'm doing my best to stay organized.
Row80 is a Round of Words in 80 Days, hop on over and visit the other participants and share word love along the way.
