When much is happening,
The little miraculous moments
Fade into the shadows.
I try to shine a little everyday in some small way.
Occasionally I surprise myself
Some days, in small ways,
I am brilliant!
A recent shiny moment was coming first in the school 50 word novel (staff entries). Ten years ago writing was a huge part of my daily routine and I am loving making it re-emerge.
This week I’m binding a new journal for the 50 word novels and I get to write mine in first! Here is a sneak preview.
50 word novel 2018
Often upon these times,
Wayward words escape from rebellious mouths,
Casting harmful thoughts; distancing people like a chasm.
One day, a few vigilante lips took control.
By carefully choosing kind, clever conversation,
They harnessed the power of creative expression,
Weaving an invisible path capable of bridging
All communication issues forever.
And naturally one thing leads to another...words are so amazing, all takes is one to put many ideas were floating in my head
Bound by time,
By human nature.
Bound by the restrictions we place on ourselves.
Tied, bundled, stitched up
Into little packages
We can barely breathe.
Bound by promises we made to ourselves,
Bound for love,
Bound for adventure.
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.
