365 Creativity Project-Day 160

Journal entry:

Journal 6-17-20120001

Today’s poem uses the wordle at The Sunday Whirl. The words in italics were suggested there. If you are in need of inspiration please visit that site.

Heart Songs

Our current paths trace
A rough draft through our spare days
And blend together
Easing the racket into
A soft and gentle refrain.

The crack of our smile
Diminishes our temper
With a winding string
Of happiness we can latch
Onto every single day.

We strike out anew
Each morning with a full chest
Accomplishing all
Our imagination draws
Our hearts toward finishing.

We write beautiful
Lines across the fabric of
The whole universe,
Our lives are songs woven through
The moments of passing time.

Great inspiration
Wells up within us bringing
Anticipation
That we will create pleasing
Things which stand throughout the years.

Another view…

I am grateful:

1.   Leigh visited and carried off our trash last night.
2.   Laura invited me to church.
3.   I woke up in plenty of time to get ready this morning.
4.   I enjoyed the Catholic church services.
5.   Alex is doing well even though he is in Afghanistan.

I hope you are having a pleasant Sunday. If you have not already, take time to create something. You have the gift of creativity needed to accomplish something of great worth.

If you need a prompt today and choose not to use the wordle mentioned above, write about your relationship with your father or being a father. Should you use this prompt, please leave a link to your work in the comments below.

I would love to know what you think of today’s entry, so please leave me a comment.

Always,
Jo Ann

    I like the idea that I may choose happiness every single day, no matter what my circumstances!

      Thank you Margo. I am glad my posts seem friendly. I wish I had been able to take more pictures of the church, I had a zoom lens and was limited. I hope the comments inspired you. I am trying to add prompts to get others creating.

      Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting. It means a lot to me.

    “We write beautiful
    Lines across the fabric of
    The whole universe,
    Our lives are songs woven through
    The moments of passing time. ”
    Jo Ann, This is one of the most poignant verses I’ve read in a long time–absolutely beautiful! It evoked wonderufl pictures in my mind of tapestries being woven among the starts. Thanks for expanding my imagination!

      Laura, I liked those lines a lot, too. They just popped into my head. Working with counted syllables can lead to interesting effects. I am glad it brought pictures to your mind.

      You are very welcome to the inspiration.
