I really wanted to write a poem every couple of days, this week has been tough. I am working on a children’s book and it has been something I thought I loved and now I hate. I need to find sites to go to for help on this type of writing. I think it is the fear of actually trying to get something published that is kind of holding me back.

That being said. I will be out of town for a week so I won’t be able to post for awhile anyway. Maybe I’ll get to actually write-the old fashioned way. Oh how I miss pen and  paper!

time moves emotionless
while I remain still

rain pours downward
pavement awash in puddles
leaf litter clutters roadways

it is slippery outside
inside as well

I think it is difficult to write poetry on a computer, but I don’t have the place for paper and pen anymore. My life is totally upside down since having children.  I am thankful for blog spaces like this. It is almost like picking out a journal and  a pen. Only  in fonts and templates.

I figure if I can write on paper I can write on a blog…
