OctToWriPo - Day 7

Exhaustion

I'm pretty sure that is what did it.  That thing that is wrong
Sleeping together as a family - does that happen?

What makes it ok?  What makes anything ok?  We said so.

OctPoWriMo - Day 6

Word Prompts:

Healing
Melancholy
Smart
Music
Politics


Martyr
I'd rather my child choose to be a martyr than to live a lie

I'd rather that 

Or would I?  They say I wouldn't even though they don't know me

Would my child pick that route?  Does anyone choose to be a martyr?

Do they?

OctoPoWriMo - Day 5

Word Prompts:

open
close
possibilities
repercussions
choices
consequences
tenacity
strength


BLACK AND WHITE
I can't believe something partially.  It is believing it all 

not believing it
               there isn't a middle option

So I take action 

               there isn't a middle option

I make it happen, I couldn't live with myself otherwise

               there isn't a middle option

This is the option.

OctPoWriMo - Day 3

Prompts:

Motherhood
Pain
Reproduction
Joy
Life 
Choice






THEY CALL ME


so many things
out in repetition land
the place where books live

those over there call me too 
but a different, less sing/songie way

But what do I hear inside?

They call me

OctPoWriMo - Day 2

Prompt Words:

child's mind
what waits in the darkness
fantasy world
what is real

Today's poem is inspired by my typical night's sleep with the wildlife in our neighborhood, if it isn't the donkeys or the coyote it is the owls or the quail or the crows or the neighbors cannabis smoke...


The Cycle of Sleep
I hear the crickets one two infinity
I drift off to ...
so loud the donkey braying

Damn you donkey

I hear the breeze smoothly flowing
I drift off to ...
so loud the coyote is yapping

Damn you too, you loud mouth pack ...

I hear the engine hum of the early morning commuters 
I drift off to ...
so loud the alarm clock sings, WAKE UP!

I've been up, damn you.

OctPoWriMo - One Poem a Day for the Month of October

Oct 1


Prompts:
Pitch Black
Soul fire 
Chaos
Awakening

Todays' poem is influenced by Adam Roa's podcast Deep Dive, specifically this episode:  https://soundcloud.com/adamroa/deep-dive-musings-emotions-are-the-key-to-manifesting-your-dreams


Limits No More
beliefs are dynamic - flowing and maturing
fueled by a deep yearning to influence
dancing around the fire feeling my emotions
watching them
feeling the toes connecting the links from me to you

darkness rests your vision
total darkness feels lonely but being there allows you to see more

so many pinballs of emotions to dodge and grab as the soul desires

desire fuels our path  all decisions all changes all connection

in relation with my limits to hold the belief accountable to take off and change - to be new to keep up with my NoW!
