Daily Prompt: January 25, 2023

List five things you do for fun.

Daily Prompt

I read and view blogs – poetry, prose, and other art. Print books and poetry journals as well. And I cook simple meals and watch the seasons from the kitchen window. I create new posts and write new poems. Music – many things add beauty to my days. Thank you.

What could you do differently?

“What are your biggest challenges?”

What are your biggest challenges?

Daily Prompt

One challenge these days is organizing my creative work. Blogs work so well for this goal. When I reprint a poem, or if a new poem from my blogs is published again in a journal or book, I note the references and credits in a post or page. This is a work-in-progess, and I like that I can update posts.

Over time, a lot of good work can grow, one post at a time. Then the challenge is to review here and there. You may have written a haiku sequence, a chapbook, short stories, some poems for notecards or a collage, or a poem for a bulletin board to encourage others.

Hopefully, I grow as a writer here, and can also review my work and see how I can write a poem a little better. Wonderful to try new ideas.

This Page is an example of how work can be organized: Haiku Society of America Members’ Anthologies (my haiku 2013 – 2022).

Thank you and blessings for your creative work!

on a birch tree branch

time with the Psalms
a dove on the branch
pictures a poem

Thy statutes have been my songs
in the house of my pilgrimage.
