Hello. I don’t mean to sound quite so dramatic, but it was almost like that. I typed up the poem for The Sunday Whirl and headed to Wordgathering, my main blog, when my brain asked: Why don’t you put all your poetry on Random Stones [a second blog, at the moment, only in use once a year]?
I have considered this before, but made the decision to keep my poetry [I haven’t considered stones poetry, so much as a source of possible poems, so they will remain on the other blog, whatever we decide.] and regular posts together. I think I was thinking to make your lives easier. I think my thinking has shifted because it might make your lives easier to have my regular posts in one place and my poetry in another. Clearly, I am not quite sure, so feel free to pitch in with opinions.
The question before you, the readers, is: Do I want to have the same amount of emails coming to my inbox, but with two different sources so it seems like more, or do I like the way Margo has things, with the occasional unexpected poem popping up? Followers who visit [i.e. not via inbox], your question is: Do I want to track Margo in two different places?
Yes, this week’s wordle poem.
Practice Living, Not Being
Listen when I tell you life has a giddy clarity
if we stop long enough within the tumult
to take a breath. Sweet or bitter, the venture
asks that we awake, step into the fire of what is.
I am so glad to be whirling again! Thank you, Brenda.
