why write?

I have to write what I hear in my head, what I dream in my sleep, what my bones ache to express.

My poems tell stories of strength, love, regret, disobedience, loss, hope, redemption, and whatever whispers to you.

a playlist

My husband and I walking a difficult road.  The following is the first, fifth, and last stanzas of a new nine-stanza pantoum I started yesterday morning on my way to work and “finished” tonight while we watched Borgen on Netflix.  Counting, paying attention to the plot, definitely a challenge.

I need to write about this

I sing my playlist to Raleigh

he loves Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon”

loves when I sing it

 

I make it to the second chorus

start over

make it through the song

sing it again

 

make it through the first verse

I can’t sing the chorus

I skip to the next song

I need to write about this
