So the other day I listed some things I wanted to do more of and one was writing. I even said maybe I’d try my hand at poetry. Now, I am definitely not a poet but it was fun to try to just pen a few words together to mean a little something… at least to me. So I thought today, I’d share one little ‘poem’ with you. No judgment allowed here! LOL (I’m struggling with the format on WordPress… it won’t let me indent the way I want to for the poems.)
Come too soon
They offer me something new
To accept it or
Linger in bed
Just a little longer —
And because as I looked over these, I realized these two kind of go together… I’ll share a second…
into sleep —
Eh, it’s nothing that takes your breath away but they are mine and what I was feeling in the moment.
I also took time to write two letters I had been wanting to write on the lovely stationery with the lovely fountain pen I received for Christmas this year, or last year, because it is a new year. They almost make it look like I have decent, almost nice even, handwriting!
Writing really is something I want to do more of in my life. I find it to be therapeutic, healing and sometimes just plain fun. I’ve always thought it would be fun to be a writer, an author. I’ve dabbled here and there and have even been paid a little. Yay me! But I know if I want to get better I need it to do it more often. Not just sermon writing, not just devotions, though those count, but I need to do some just for the fun of it! Just for the art of it, so I’m working on it. I can do this! I’ll write a little every day, here or in a journal, prose, poetry, journaling or letter writing. Just pen to paper or finger to keyboard. Just Write!
