A day of free verse writing
Updated: Mar 31
I feel it is bettter to write something than nothing at all. So today I tried some free verse writing.
Sunshine and Oatmeal Cookies
I am not feeling it.
I cannot write.
I cannot focus.
My brain is running amuck.
Finally, I sit.
A ray of sun shines through the window.
It warms my bare feet.
I bite into a freshly baked oatmeal cookie.
With these simple things, I catch my breath.
Now, I can regather my thoughts.
Slow and steady.
I draw myself deeper into the notes.
They calm me; they ripple at my thoughts.
Thoughts of peace.
Thoughts of fond memories.
My grandma’s fingers slide over the keys.
She does not read sheet music.
She lets her fingers and mind make up the tunes.
~ I miss her.
A simple white vase.
It holds such beauty.
A rose, a daisy, a tiger lily.
