November began a week ago, and with it came a flurry of creative inspiration. D.L. Mayfield announced she will be posting something on her blog everyday this month—a practice in noticing and gratitude. November’s challenge in A Year of Creative Habits group is to post a photo everyday of this month. Which reminded me of when I was in college and wrote a haiku each day during the month of November for a creative writing class.
So this year I’m going to try to combine these various practices into a weekly post: poetry, photos, noticing, gratitude. My semester is getting busy to the point where I’m beginning to feel unhinged.
i blew in on the witching wind
frost on rooftops, fog swirling down the canal
words spoken to heal a city
a light to ward off darkness
sun on linoleum and white walls and dried flowers
slow walks in sandals, no socks
endless blue skies
