So, no I haven’t been here for awhile, other than to contribute some 14-word poems for the Valentine project. I will attempt to have more of a presence, and write regularly. After all, isn’t that the point of 20 Lines? I’ve reinstated my Facebook account and have been updating it, and have also been concentrating on weight loss. That keeps me busy shopping and cooking well, eating healthfully and tracking what I eat, and making sure I get in my daily exercise. Whew. That’s all time–taking.
But…my first love is writing, so I will return with a poem:
Connecting once again on Facebook, loss
of weight…important, yes, but not the boss.
I come to write, and writing fills me up,
brims, spills and overflows my little cup.
Words come to me in silences of night
or when the sun melts snow, the sun so bright
that I can barely look outside. Could spring
be far behind? Words wonder, question, sing.
