I write to keep me sane. I write so that my words may outlive my life. I write to find redemption

To share is to savor even more

I can already tell that my explosive
period of poetic inspiration is coming
to an end. Instead of 5-7 poems a day
I am down to 1 poem every few days.
But that is fine with me. I know me
and know that these burst come
randomly and consume me when
they do. But, in time, they taper out
and I return to a more normal schedule of writing.

I wrote a poem last night I thought

I would share with anyone who reads my blog.

A Mission for the Girl

This girl,
who never
set the world on fire
downcast eyes
and weary smiles,
now aims her
full force field
of internal
toward bringing to life
the dream that resides
in a
well of desire
she only
recently tapped.

She's finding foot holes on a
mountain of courage that
rises out of her depths.

Though others
would have
she had this in her.

But, as for the girl,
she always knew.

Now her plan
is to grab and
and scratch
at the
grasp at the world
grip it with
both hands,
shake it up
it shakes out
all that she is owed
for the time she sowed
being such a
good girl.

All she wants is
and everything is all
she is due.

    Nice poem, Sara. The intensity of a poetic journey is erratic, isn't it. Just rest in its dimension and go with flow. The fact that you're writing as a writer. Isn't that a wonderful feeling?

    Oops! I meant..."go with the flow."

    I enjoyed your poem. WE all get those brusts of creative engery, and then they slow down. Heres to hoping yours picks up again. Are you working on a MS?

    this feeling is the best natural high I have ever felt. I wish I could bottle it. Writing is sanity for me.

    I am making slow proogress on a MS. But I feel happy about what I have written so far. It's still not on strong enough ground for me to feel like I am sure it has legs to go all the way to THE END. We shall see.
