stop, collaborate and listen, #1

(The gracious and wonderful Mrs. Chili has helped me write a poem for today. Go see her site. She’s a beautiful soul. She had lines 2 and 4, fyi.)

Half a flock of birds feasting on morning meal; the other half in conversation
The warmth from my coffee cup seeps into my fingers as I ponder my own migration
A besting from the morning is a trend I learn to daily break.
The open sky is foreign to me; my wings feel insufficient to the task
From whence the sun rises, so now I do soar.

(for Read.Write.Poem.)



  1. It was fun; I will HAPPILY do it again.

  2. First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I’ve
    had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or tips? Many thanks!
