A Month of Poetry

April is national poetry month. So, October is kind of like its half-birthday. In that vein, I plan to write a poem a day for each of the thirty-one days in October. In order to hold myself accountable, I will post each day’s poem before midnight of that day.

Now, these poems won’t be polished, by any means. In fact, some of them may be complete garbage. But that doesn’t mean they’re not worthwhile to write. That’s the creative process after all. It’s been a long time since I’ve had the motivation to write with any sort of regularity and I need to rectify that.

So, starting Tuesday, I will be putting pen to paper (or fingers to keys rather) every day, for thirty-one days. I hope you won’t judge me too harshly as I undertake this journey. I might just find something on my way.

What that is, we shall find out, together.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Back to Work

I just went back to work after being off for about three weeks. Needless to say, I’m very tired at the moment. So, this is about all the blog post I can do right now.

I hope everyone has a good weekend!

Old Shows Are New Again

I’m re-watching Lost Girl and it’s been so long since I watched it the first time, that I’ve actually forgotten a lot. It’s rather like watching the whole thing for the first time. Which is quite nice.

Plus, being able to watch the episodes in quick succession makes the whole storyline fit together much better. I am really loving this particular binge session.

Have a relaxing weekend everyone!

Creative Writing: A Poem About the Weather

I’d like to share a poem that I wrote at the beginning of the year.

 

The Wind

Its beastly bellows sweep through the holler,

like a dragon searching for its lost gold,

never to escape from the twists and plunges

these hills hide in their bosom, trees catching

hold with greedy fingers, unwilling to release

their captive until, worn down to shadows,

it passes like a sigh against the window,

not even alerting the dogs to its presence.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!
