Though I have been a bit overwhelmed with life these past couple weeks (and recovering from the pace of National Poetry Month in April), I have remained committed to posting SOMEthing each day. Writing has opened up an entire new world of expression for me, and I refuse to let life overwhelm me to the point of not writing. A friend suggested that my writing might even increase — I haven’t found that to be the case, but I have yet to allow the numbness and weariness to overtake my echoes.
So today…I eke out a simple haiku:
brandishing my pen
forbidding you to stop me
managing to write
The last word, “write”, could be substituted with “feel” or “grow” or “live”…all of which are encompassed in my new-found need to write…
