As I Sat Shelving...


…I opened one of the many new books of poetry that were just donated.  I saw just one word on a page, and my mind opened up as if it were an umbrella.  I could almost feel it unfolding above me.  I could feel new poems trying to come out.

When I started writing this morning, I thought of the one word as wrote of closings instead of unfoldings.  It shocked me.


                                                                    
  • Himself:  Happy doing his own stuff today.
  • Herself:  Writing words about real things.  A meeting with a friend at three….and I would dearly love to go to the Book Signing at Warwicks in La Jolla tonight but won’t.  Darn it.  Dinner out.
  • Reading:  Something new that I have my doubts about.
  • Gratitudes:  To be here and feel pretty clear today.

    2. Totally busy this week in the gardener's plant sale. Got myself involved in a small project where I was supposed to have two helpers. One showed and could only stay half the time, the other showed and left before I got there thinking her job was to give advice!

    5. There! that one word. You got it. I feel like that when I see a tree limb, or a leaf.
      "and my mind opened up as if it were an umbrella. I could almost feel it unfolding above me."

      Then you wrote of closings. But, you wrote!

    6. It's funny how inspiration works. I couldn't get my posts done for several days and then I finished two weeks worth in one day. Actually, my life has been so crazy hectic lately that it's been hard to keep up with my blogging.
