I am going to try my hand at a weekly post starting on Thursday. I know everyone has their weekly commitments so you may not be able to join, but I thought I would give it a whirl.
What is The "Quotable Quotidian"
I have written a lot of poetry throughout the years. I think we all know that poets don't make any money so I don't plan on putting together a collection of work anytime soon. However, I would like a place to share my poetry or other literary inspirations. The Quotable Quotidian can be words of wisdom, famous quotes, not-so-famous quotes, lines of poetry, a line from a favorite song, etc. It can be your own insight and creativity or that of another; give credit where credit is due. If you read something or hear something and feel inspired, share it here.
I am working on Mr. Linky for Thursday. If you participate, please put a link on your post to return here so everyone can share. There is a button on my side bar (yah, I have a button now). I also have a parenthood for me button that you can transport to your blog if you desire. I like to travel.
Here is my first entry of the Quotable Quotidian.
This is a poem I wrote about three years ago when TTC. For me writing kind of just spurts out of my brain in unforeseen moments, driving in the car, brushing my teeth, in the middle of the night, etc. This poem popped into my head after one image fluttered across my radar. It was the only poem I was able to finish while grieving and living the maddening life of ART.
Blended words and blended beats
My heart’s concave it needs release
Empty cells nestled near
Absence stirs the mood of fear
The body yearns to seal its fate
And awaits its chance to create
Somewhere lost I might not gain
I’ll nuzzle through despair and pain
