April 2, 2016 Bowling Time
Day two and already I’m feeling the burn. Its been a full day of everything but poetry, or sitting down for poetry writing. I’ll say it like that because I believe that poetry is an integral part of my everyday life. It is just part of who I am. But some days making the commitment to put it on paper is just that – a commitment, like today when my mind and body were completely exhausted. I would not allow myself to skip one day and surely not as soon as the second day. Nor write any later than immediately. I made myself do write in spite of it being late and my mind feeling depleted. I sat down with nothing on my mind. I began to type the only word that came to me, time. From there I followed word for word the words that seemed to only come as fast as I could type. It was a typing on faith poem. I didn’t quite know what I wanted to say but I said what came to me as it did. When it was completed, I had a bit of an emotional exhale. I felt that the poem was good. I didn’t understand how it could come out of me when I felt I had nothing else to give. One of those creative mysteries that seem to happen quite often. Thank you for reading my poem and hopefully you will challenge yourself to read a poem a day for thirty days.
but goal accomplished. Poem, done. And I like it.
