Life of an Indie Artist (#poem #NaPoWriMo)

Drums pounding in my brain Will I ever fall asleep again? Plots summer in my thoughts Telling stories I’ve yet to write Dreaming to be read like the books on my shelf Music hammers all night long Composing melodies and scheming rhymes Verse and chorus climb the ridge Leading me to the dreaded bridge Thus … Continue reading Life of an Indie Artist (#poem #NaPoWriMo)

Inside/Outside (#poem #NaPoWriMo)

On the outside where everything is fine Smiles and happy faces reassuring others making them feel better Halfway on the inside is okay, if not sublime Sipping coffee, thinking pleasant thoughts of things that seldom matter But look deep down on the inside where our true selves live The self we try to deny As … Continue reading Inside/Outside (#poem #NaPoWriMo)

The Little Things (#poem #NaPoWriMo)

The after shave, the men’s cologne on the medicine cabinet shelf Suits and dresses sharing their adventures in the closet with belts Bright desert sun nudging me awake with a kiss Are some of the little things that no longer exist Making coffee in the kitchen doesn't bother me I don't make the coffee Nor … Continue reading The Little Things (#poem #NaPoWriMo)

Morning Sky (#poem #NaPoWriMo)

The morning sky streaks pink and orange stripes While fragrant air steams from the earth Water fowl tiptoes along the pond I sip my coffee and peek through palm fronds The rising sun blinds my sleepy eyes The world awakens, early morning bikers swish good night The quiet of the dawn disappears Birds chirping, dogs … Continue reading Morning Sky (#poem #NaPoWriMo)

Happy Easter, #NaPoWriMo, and #CampNaNo

Wow! So much happening on April 1st! And I didn’t even mention April Fool’s Day. My first priority is Easter liturgy followed by an amazing brunch - details later on my other blog. Then it’s my first poem for my first #NaPoWriMo and I might even work on a novel for #CampNaNo, although unofficially. Hubby … Continue reading Happy Easter, #NaPoWriMo, and #CampNaNo

#NaPoWriMo, #CampNanoWriMo, #LogicProX: Making Tough Choices

The closer it gets to April 1st, the more overwhelmed I am about trying to do CampNano (novel), NaPo (poems), and  LogicProX (music production) classes. It ain't gonna happen. 🙂 Something's gotta give and it's going to be CampNano. Ouch! I have such mixed feelings about it. I've been trying to write both music and … Continue reading #NaPoWriMo, #CampNanoWriMo, #LogicProX: Making Tough Choices

April is Writing Month (#NaPoWriMo #CampNaNoWriMo)

I've been gearing up for writing 30 poems in 30 days for #NaPoWriMo this April but I've just learned of #CampNaNoWriMo (April version of #NaNoWriMo--Novel Writing Month). Something has got to give! After #FAWM (February Album Writing Month), I've decided that perhaps I should give my ears a break and write a novel and poetry … Continue reading April is Writing Month (#NaPoWriMo #CampNaNoWriMo)
