listening to Einaudi, The Dark Line
Y’all are nuts, you know. Note the added authority in the statement, eleven days into the month. As I am part of the nuttiness this year, I had better make it, We all are nuts, you know. Just wait ’til next year when I sit back with the knowledge I have been here and done this. Talk about authority when I say, Y’all are nuts, you know.
I apologise for the late posts this month. They depend on my having a poem. At least, they do since I decided if the poem is short it’s going in with the day’s offerings. I feel like I’m flooding everything, what with actively shouting out The Pulitzer Remix Project [think of my link as to another poem I’ve done for Poem a Day] everywhere, along with my 84 co-conspirators doing the same.
Poem first, then a couple of links to take you away from it all. The poem is in response to We Write Poems. They ask for our first, our very first, thought on waking. Remember that they are trying out us being able to post our poems anytime during the week [like you do here]. Poem:
Footsteps shuffle over carpet
into my sleep — he’s up, mmmmm,
one more hour. I roll over
into his left behind warmth.
Places to visit:
1] Because we forget to do this, I’m bringing back Calm. They have changed the environments and have a new set of soothing vistas and sounds. Choose the amount of time you want and click. To see the different environments, use the arrow bottom right. They offer a guided imagery but you can turn the voice off, also bottom right [Not the volume button. The voice button appears after the voice begins.] This may be my favourite all-time site.
2] This second is to a blog that has, among many interests, an interest in how poetry works. I liked this particular post, but if you want to get lost in things non-poetic, look at the right-hand sidebar. Blog author Kenney Meyers has a wide-ranging eye.
3] For a bit of lighthearted nonsense [and great fun for me] visit The Rag Tree. It has been a while, hasn’t it? I have just been crowned Queen of the Dragons of Grammar for the year. This post describes my coronation tea. While you are there, wander around and remind yourself of the many excellent posts to be found here.
I’ll see you tomorrow for the April roundup and pretty much every day in April, should my brain not snap, explode, implode… so many possibilities.
Happy writing, everyone.
