365 Creativity Project-Day 239

Journal entry:

Journal 9-4-20120001

I used the prompt from Carry On Tuesday to help spark my imagination with the following poem.


Once upon a time
There was happiness with you,
But that time has passed
And I am left quite alone,
Yet I am not so lonely.

I have found good life
Is not necessarily
Made up of romance;
There are many fulfilling
Pastimes and people besides.

There is happiness
In being of some service
To others in need;
There is reward in using
Endless creativity.

I wait patiently
For someone new to appear
Filling emptiness
Your absence has left behind,
But I am not unhappy.

Once upon a time
I believed my heart broken,
But I understand
My life can be completely
Full without your presence now.

    Great subject today Jo Ann. i think all writers experience it more than we’d like to admit. Everyone has their own method for getting the page filled, but like you I jsut sit down and put words to paper. Someitmes brilliance is illuminated and sometimes the words are just words with no meaning. I still feel as though I’ve accomplished something though because I’ve kept my promise to myself to write.

    Have a great evening!

      Thank you Laura. I think it is more common than some want to admit, but I have found if I just keep writing I can overcome my lack of inspiration. I am glad to know that you confront the issue like I do.
