Grab a cup of tea or coffee (oh what the heck, get a danish too!) and sit a spell. You might want to grab your notebook and pen because you never know when you will be inspired to write down a quote, or jot down a poem of your own. Words are like that, they take you on a journey and the next thing you know you are breathing life into your own magical world of words.

OctPoWriMo - Shining My Light and Vulnerability

My skin feels like it is on inside out a lot lately, everything feels slightly off or a lot off. Part of it is the pandemic and part of it is the cycle of life I am in. I spend a lot of time alone, partly by choice and partly, well, the pandemic. But even without the pandemic, I don't know that I would be spending much time with other people. More now than ever in my life, it feels difficult to be with people. That's why I spend most of my time with dogs and cats. They don't judge and they love, mostly, unconditionally. 

I've decided to combine day one and day two of OctPoWriMo.

Inside me is light
peaking from small little cracks
the broken places 

skin chaffs and prickles
at vulnerability 
opening to feel

Picking at the cracks
widening, growing brighter
letting more light out


  1. Oooh, sends shivers that does
    Excellent Morgan!

  2. ahaa...letting more light out .....
    loved your artwork.

  3. " Letting more light out" should be the mantra! Wonderfully expressed, Morgan.

  4. Loved your artwork and your poem. Beautifully expressed!

  5. Definitely feeling this whole post. I so get choosing to be alone. It's how I feel lately too. I really just need some quiet time away from everyone, not for an extended period, but a couple of weeks in a secluded beach house or cabin in the woods sounds fantastic.
    The poem is wonderful and reminds me of Lindsey Stirling's Shatter Me song.
    Very nice!

  6. Well expressed!Let your light shine. Loved your artwork.😊

  7. yes... let it shine let it shine

  8. A bow to the light we all have inside that needs to get out to the world. Love your artwork, too, Morgan. xoa <3
