4 Seasons of the Writing Life (Part 1)

One of the reasons I considered NOT participating in the Write 31 Days in October writing challenge has to do with the season I believe the Lord has revealed is upon me in my writing life.

I’ve never really struggled to write or felt like I have had writers block. Part of the reason for this fact is I don’t abide by a specific form of writing, but allow my pen to freely flow as it wishes to go…without judgement. The  more the pen glides across the paper the easier it is to get unstuck. I’m fairly committed to sitting down with a blank page, or blinking cursor on-screen and allowing what will be to be.

However, I committed to blogging with the intention of following the Lord’s leading. Which I feel I mostly have done. Until now.

Grace for All Seasons (End of Summer Reflections)

Narragansett Town Beach - as it looked on the morning of September 1, 2015 - beautiful in every season!

Narragansett Town Beach – as it looked on the morning of September 1, 2015 – beautiful in every season!

Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Psalm 103:1-5

 

Here we are, friends. Day Two, September. Seasonal change is upon us once more, and as sure as the tides ebb and flow each day, we are all adjusting our rutters as we ready ourselves for the days ahead. Can’t you just feel the change in the air? Though the Summer temperatures linger a bit, and we will enjoy them as they are given, the thrust to batten down the hatches and head out full speed ahead into the final four months of 2015 is a palpable energy. The return of routines, activities and  increased momentum will continue to challenge each one of us to order our days with careful consideration in light of the season we are in, and the seasons we’ve yet to know.

So many wonderful things vie for our attention, don’t they? So many opinions, opportunities, possibilities. But, the question remains. What is calling you from the quietness of your being now? What season are YOU in? Forget that Fall is slowly preparing for its debut, and I saw two leaves fall, whimsically before me,  as I drove toward the beach this morning. More

Days of March

Wednesday night in bed, before falling asleep, I wrote a journal entry which read like a poem to sum up these days of March.

I tweaked it a bit after reading Victoria’s post at dVerse today.  She is asking poets to play with verb usage.

Not sure I hit it, but you can see my effort and original draft below…

Tonight I give you two poems for the price of one! Friends from dVverse, feel free to scroll down for the Macro/Micro proper.

Shanyn is hosting the dVerse Poetics – the prompt was a Macro picture and a Micro poem  of 140 characters or less. I misunderstood and started with 140 words (111 actually) but then was graciously corrected. So here we have both efforts. All in all a fun night of writing.
