Now then: what can it mean that I'm at a loss for an April Poetry Month project???
a) I'm too distracted by the burgeoning of spring (and possibly menobrain) to concentrate on anything
b) I've had tons of ideas over the last few months that I just can't remember (see again menobrain)
c) I've grown less structured by grand complicated plans and more able to go with a general intention
d) all of the above
Ah. And there it is...ALL OF THE ABOVE.
I now choose, for my April Poetry Month project 2019,
a) to be distracted by the burgeoning of spring or anything else that catches my attention, including
possibly the unexpected workings of my menobrain
b) to be suddenly struck by an idea I once had & which reappears with a pop (see again menobrain)
and usually an exclamation such as "OTTER POPS! They were called Otter Pops!"
c) to be less structured by a grand complicated plan and more able to go with a general intention
|turns out you can still buy these...kinda ruins the moment
In other words, I will now become my own Random Thing Picker with the general intention to write a poem--any poem, any length, any form, any style, any topic--each day of this month.
And also it might be okay to miss a day, because, you know, LIFE.
All of the Above
In the spirit of "growth mindset," "I don't have it...yet,"
"I can't do it...yet," "I haven't learned it...yet,"
I choose it all, all of it, everything,
redhot uncool greedy passion for AllOfEverything
Our host for the Poetry Friday round-up today is Carol at Carol's Corner, where the daffodils are intensely all of the above for just a short while and furthermore don't feel bad about that in any way. Bloom on over, and see you also on APRIL 1st!
