A space for creative writing for poems or prose I’ve written and stuff I like.
A poem I’ve written: Purple, pink & blue
I didn’t used to know your name, now each year I wait for your return.
Big balls of petals blue, purple & pink, how I love your blooms.
My birthday used to mean the sun, but is now at a time of rain. The time your flowers burst open and are at full glory once again.
You remind me one more year has passed, and I am one year grown. Instead of sad nostalgia, I stare in awe, your beauty makes me rapture.
Oh Ajisai, pale hydrangea, your bubbles of abundant joy will always make me smile. I find a bench to sit and rest, I’ll stay with you a while.
A poem on getting started: Get going
So many aspirations, so many ideas.
Where do I put them, how shall I keep them?
To get off the hypothetical, off the page and into the real, the tactile, the actual. To breathe life into them, that is what I want to do, now more than ever.
The question is always. . .
When should I start?
How should I start?
Should I start?
JUST START ALREADY!
