When making a list of goals for February, I decided that will do the following:
- Edit two of my poems a day
- Continue to compile a PDF to Print File
- Blog Daily reaching for 50 views per day
- Submit to one publication by deadline
- Search for an editor
- Start reading the book Writing the Poetic Life by Sage Coen
Besides blogging, yesterday I researched self-publishing. It took several hours of my day. I took notes. I ran numbers. I printed guidebooks for PDF’s and book creation. I also did some cleaning out of my office.
In between those tasks, I wrote one poem and cleaned up another. Here they are:
Why have you returned?
Months ago you left me.
You were gone,
I was more rested and
I drag myself
Out of bed in the
Walking the halls
For two hours with you
What have I done to cause
Aging Hair turning white, My mother’s hand comes out of my sleeve. Age spots here, and painful knees there. But, I am still young! Am I not?
Can you relate to either of these poems today? If so, tell me why in the comments!
