  1. smiles…its cool…the twin realities here…
    they are not seperate, but taking responsibility in our lives,
    having a family, it takes quite a bit out of you…but you still have emotions
    and you still have things to write…cool structure in this…

    what happens? life happens…and we can use it for a reason to write and connect, or we can use it as the excuse.

  2. Bravo! It’s so easy to get sidetracked…especially mothers, and those who work overtime, and clean, and be someone’s lover….and laundress…and on and on. So glad that pen got picked up again…at the exact perfect time, Raivenne.

    • Oh it is still far too easy to be sidetracked, Bodhirose. Even now, as prolific a writer I am, I cringe to think of all the lines lost to the cosmos because I did not take the time to write them as I thought them, instead choosing to ‘get to it in a minute’ that never came. But I am grateful for the hundreds I do have.

      Thank you!

      • You’re so welcome. I have had the same thing happen to me when a great line or idea will pop into my head and I think that I’ll surely remember it and get to it later. No, I never remember. So sad…

    • Thanks Rallentanda! You are so dead on about the catharsis. I am pretty sure I would be not be here today, had I not found my pen again. That it’s a gift to others as well is a bonus.

  3. “…painted murals
    (while vacuuming the carpets, again)” that made me smile…

    also, loved the background you gave after the poem too… we all get a lost sometimes… life has a way of doing that 🙂 keep writing… no more tossing… smiles

    • :: Big grins :: I stopped tossing not too long after that, choosing to keep my counsel on more permanent media. Now and then, I will take a trip down memory lane in my journals and get new inspirations from old emotions. Thanks Anthony.

    • ” seems so many processes that make people write.” So many roads, all leading to poetry and prose. As long as we don’t let life get in the way of living. Thanks Björn.
