Poem #2

In the past two days, since deciding to write creatively regardless of purpose, I have written six mini poems and a few fictional paragraphs that don’t fit into my novel. It’s quite nice, writing aimlessly whilst knowing I’m doing it for myself. It doesn’t have a point which is the point. Rather than saying ‘it’s […]

Poem #1

If you remember from yesterday’s post, I’m unofficially challenging myself to write creatively without a purpose. Although does posting them on this blog give them a purpose? (I’m asking the real questions, campers.) Here’s my poem of the day, a short fella that took a few seconds. Isn’t it funny what we can create in […]

A Poem a Day

Yesterday someone told me they were impressed by my notebook collection. Impressed further still when I told them they were all filled save for the one I currently use. I journal nearly everyday. Not just ‘this is what happened today’, but reflections and thoughts and emotions and prayers and poems and short stories and ideas […]

Ramblings and Zines

It still smells like spring and the sun lingers in the evening, creating an atmosphere in which I want to both be waking up as early as I can and falling asleep as late as possible. I don’t want to miss any part of the day. My window is open even when it gets too […]

Lost and Found / Poem

Just a lil’ thing to say hi. Get back in the groove, so to speak. Something about blogging even if a thought isn’t polished. ‘Lost and Found’, a poem by me: I need You To watch over me. To carry me home To calm the seas. I’m a lost sheep Worn, tired. You’re the Shepherd […]

Us, Today / Poem

What happens to me sometimes when I’m writing is a piece goes somewhere I’m not expecting it to. I can start off a poem with an intent, and then it goes in a different direction just because, which is fine, but that can result in the poem not being as personal to me as it […]

Erasure / Poem

I find it strange that considering I love to read so much (so, so much) I don’t blog about books that often. I think because I have a Goodreads account all my ratings, reviews, to-be-read list, have-read, etc., already have a place to go. But I felt like talking about books. In the past few […]

How Long / Poem

‘How Long’, a song by me: It’s what happens when nothing else matters It’s not easy when you know the world is dying, And it’s not easy when you see the people crying. I gave you the best look I have Tell me, is it enough? Just tell me what to say And I’ll tell […]

Never Left Alone / Poem

I spent the morning writing songs and just trying out things on my guitar. Also listening to ABBA. Though that last one doesn’t really apply to this blog post. I’ve been feeling pretty uninspired in terms of writing songs and books and blogs and I’ve been listening to all this music and reading all this […]
