I read this question, along with a bunch of other REALLY GOOD questions on my friend Karen Swank's blog post from yesterday.
Somewhere along the way with National Poetry Month I read a prompt about writing a poem entirely of questions.
For whatever reason, reasonable or just Currie-ish, I found myself reading Karen's post and thinking with some other part of my brain.
Am I willing to apologise
And Let Go of your unkindness
[a really nice word for what I think about what you did]
When I know that
You were only operating on information
I gave YOU
The year BEfore
And what I thought I needed to DO
WE needed to DO?!
Am I willing to apologise for my part
And the oh so much I did
And all that came BEfore
Years and years BEfore
When Life was different
Willing to apologise
[myself, as you haven't asked for mine and...]
To stop writing about this in my head
My much too busy head
Over and over and over again
Even if you never say another
Poeming in the middle of a Saturday afternoon is a stretch for me. BEcause I DO my poeming early in the mornings, BEfore my brain is firing on BEing critical and judging whether or NOT I should EVEN let some of my thoughts out in the Light of a day.
But there you go... I am glad to BE a little bolder today.
And to mayBE head some others over to read Karen's blog. She has a way with thoughtsandfeelings and a gift for inspiring me...
[and others, I have this on good authority]
I am challenging myself to write out loud for the 91 days, 1 April through 30 June 2013. I'm pulling questions out of hats and giving them some room to romp. If you have a question to share, please email me...
