In Need of a Kickstart
Good morning! Over the weekend I had my poetry journal out trying to write poetry. Nothing happened – my thoughts are all jumbled and neither words nor syllable count wanted to cooperate.
Thoughts a jumbled mess
still rusty from long absence
where shall I begin?
I guess it’s a start. I managed the first two lines on the weekend; the last line finally worked out as I’m typing this blog post. I am also catching up on housework too many things have piled up with me not feeling well. I am thankful autumn is almost here; though you would not know it by the temperatures in Phoenix. The highs are still well over 100! I love the fall. Shawn and I will be celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary and then November marks another birthday for me.
Check out episode 43 of the Haiku Chronicle – rain seems to be a common theme this week. Since I wrote my contribution near the beginning of August, I still had monsoon season on my mind. And now nearing mid September, the desert is returning to its dry heat. Humidity and I do not get along very well. I am sitting in my air conditioned home still trying to write and waiting for monsoon season to come to a close.
Summer will end soon
vision to write poetry
is not going well
The #haikuchallenge word today is vision, fitting right in with #synonymsonly for Colleen’s poetry challenge.
