Description: For the Daily Prompt’s Write Here, Write Now prompt, I now write a post in present tense. Fittingly, a situation I find myself in presently.
I pick it up and turn the page
The next the next!
Battles, love unwrap before me
From page to page
And scene to scene
I yearn to know
But slowly now I try to go
I savor these last moments of ignorance
Such pleasure courses through me!
Such restraint I bear!
My hands shake
It tears me apart!
Description: Poem procrastination via reading turned out to be very helpful. How do you writers out there tend to procrastinate?
Words won’t fly out my
Fingertips so I’ll cram them
In my head instead
Description: (Day 19 of NaPoWriMo) My friend and I explored the mall and the bookstore today, which instigated a book-buying kick (for me anyway).
I grasp smooth binds like children’s hands
And let them unfold inside my palms
Each finger so crisp, white, clean
They fall free and lead me away
To love songs and laments, to curses and psalms
To the depths of minds and distant lands
They grasp tight ‘til journey’s end
Often though reaching again
Wrinkling with age and love
Composed 8/5/13 (date approximate)
Description: Typed this in my phone one evening and completely forgot about it. Just found it today.
Drying from the shower
The silence of night
A clean feeling
