It’s Not Going Well

THE WOODS

I went
to the woods

to find grounding
and life
and hope.

The trees
have seen it all.

The rocks
laugh at the trees
so young
and naive.

I walk through
and breathe
ancient whispers.

Sometimes it’s enough.

THE WOODS 2

I went
to the woods

to find grounding
and life
and hope.

The trees
have seen it all.

The rocks
laugh at the trees
so young
so naive.

Neither
notice me
younger still
and more naive.

I walk through
and breathe
ancient whispers.

Is it enough?

THE WOODS 3

I went
to the woods

to find grounding
and life
and hope.

The trees
have seen it all.

The rocks
laugh at the trees
and me
so young
so naive.

Neither
notice me
until

Spirit
laughs from
deep within
saying

Remember
you were
there
when they
were born.
I walk through
and breathe
our ancient
whispers.

I am enough.

NaNoWriMo

Just to cement the craziness of the year, I’ve decided to participate in this year’s NaNoWriMo. I’m hoping the need to generate a daily word count will get me writing again. I feel like I need the external pressure. At first, this blog was enough pressure. It worked for a couple years, until it didn’t. I want a new challenge. I’m not sure I have anything to write. Maybe I’ll find myself slipping back into poems and musings. Whatever happens, at least I’m giving it another shot.
