I didn't participate last year because I was having such a tough time. This year I feel like a completely different person, lighter, freer and more myself. I'm really looking forward to writing poetry with the other participants of OctPoWriMo.
The prompt for day one is, Shine Your Light and the poetry type is, free write. I decided to free write and see what falls to the page.
I dance upon the carpet,
moving my hips,
shaking things up as I invite my muse to join me.
My heart is more open than it has ever been,
the shadows are welcome too as
without them I'd not be able to see the light.
My light leaks out of my
reminding me of where I've been,
of what I've endured,
but that I don't have to stay there,
in the dark because to grow
I need the light.
I need the now.
Smiling into the sun,
I'm open to where the light leads me
on this journey of words
and I'm letting more light in.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll share your word love below.
