her wings
covered in ice and snow
still flew

Originally posted this on my twitter ages back. It’s been a while since I posted anything here, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been writing. I think I need to make some sort of commitment to organization because as I was going through my work I couldn’t help but notice the following:

  • 5 different notebooks full of completed and not completed poems
  • 12 post it notes with some completed and some not completed haikus that I wrote while at work
  • 3 napkins with illegible scribbles of might-have-been haikus (written at restaurants)
  • 17 voice recordings in my phone that I thought of while driving and needed to get out
  • A dozen or more ‘notes’ in my phone of incomplete and complete poems
  • A stupid amount of work saved in various notepad files on my laptop.

Yeah… just a little bit cluttered? Belated new years resolution, perhaps.

Oh, on that note
Happy New Year

  1. You live! πŸ˜€ I’ve missed your poems. And a very good poem for today. So cold.

    As to the notebooks, I so know your pain there. When I moved I had two decent sized boxes of used and partially used notebooks. Voice recordings is a good idea. Good luck uncluttering and have an epic New Year!

  2. Hahaha! Your internal clutter and collection of writings sounds about like my own. I’ve set a goal to hopeful post on a more regular basis as well. And I think I have a few of those illegible cocktail napkin scribblings as well. Best to you in the New Year!
