2022 NaPoWriMo DAY EIGHTEEN18 April 2022 Five Causes



Why?

cause time is
so long you
can never squeeze
it
shut

cause sorry
is a sweater turned
inside
out holes at your el
bows

cause wrinkled
skin
is a manifesto aloof
ness mis-
placed in a crow’s
nest

cause grains of beach
borrowed sand
crunch in your per
spicacious
kneecaps

cause the gold-eyed
moth will catch you
ahead not
spider
tango

Prompt: five answers without
a noticeable question

NaPoWriMo DAY TWO 2 April 2022



Aprosexia

bare soles
afloat in space
flee from firm
ground gravel grass

let time rush
glitter restless
shun the moment

like a hummingbird
barely hover
a hungry instant
by eager blossom
forever err on
attracted away

their love
too thinly spread
offers no hold
sidesteps the open gate
holds no promise

cares not did the sun
rise or drown
lives empty-handed
lost in liquid
endlessness

The simplest letter

Il n’y a que ça a faire:
être heureux, apprécier chaque instant. 🤗

Quelle joie de partager cette simple sagesse, un matin, à l’aube!🌹

Merci d’être là.
Je t’embrasse.💓

THE GIFT IN WHAT REPELS YOU

26 March 2022

Hi dear friend,
After listening to TONY ROBBINS last night – whose voice so REPELS you, this morning I feel curiously at peace and joyous.

Discovered something huge:
that I can do chores that I normally do inwardly dragging my feet, tempted to let myself slip into “justified, RIGHTEOUS OVERWHELM”,
surprise:

I can do, and did, those “unwanted”, “draining” things with slow, delighted gentleness and loving fingertip care. And a big smile at the wonder of life.

And I woke up with another revelation, this one about YOU, dear friend (based on a psycho law you know well). Here it is:

If you zoom in on what you most dislike in Tony’s voice, you’ll discover, hidden behind it, the one thing that is HOLDING YOU BACK from the BIG success with your poetry, music and artwork. Guaranteed.

Let me know!! Have fun.
Nothing is more exciting and rewarding than sleuth work on oneself.
Spills right over into a freer world outside.
