National Poetry Writing Month

I wish I could say
I built a solid habit,
consistency each day
devoted to writing and quiet,
and that Iíll maintain
the pattern from now on.

But sadly, creativity
is still regarded as
lack of productivity--
putting off Important Things,
a guilty stealth-activity
done when others arenít looking.

So I wrote 30 poems
but life is the same;
despite my commitment
itís still hard to proclaim
that this is a priority,
and I wonít feel shame
about duties undone
or sleep lost,
because creating is The Thing
that sets me aflame.

#30 of 30 !!! WOOHOOOO!

I'm not sure they all qualified as poetry, but hot damn, I wrote them anyway! What a lesson in letting go of perfection... LOL
