Spring-clean your handbag, circle of life, poem for the day
Vide son sac!
Empty your bag
Make a list of everything in it
Use this list to write a portrait of ownership
Circle of life…
Focusing on the deeper meanings and universal symbolism of the circle, create a mandala of words reflecting what this shape means for you.
Poem for the day
I’ve been manifesting my witchy poetess self this year; reading more poetry, studying poetry, joining a poetry book club, writing poetry, seeing and living poetry everyday…it is nothing less than po-epic!
It fits right in with my creative vibe and is a welcome reminder of all that is wondrous around me.
So have a read of Mr. Cohen’s poem, you are possibly familiar with his songs. I’ve highlighted the lower comment as our writing focus.
Where is your everyday magic? (Maybe you found it in your bag!)
“Out of the junk of everyday – ‘the garbage and the flowers’ – the magical world of the imaginative is created. There is a strong sense in which his poetry is a prodigious search of experience for the exit from the ordinary.”
For me, it seems there is not much difference between wondering and wandering. It has always helped me find inspiration. Creative dabbling is good for the soul, I couldn't imagine life without it and often surprise myself by what I come up with.
