2022 Creativity Project – March 21

My 365 Creativity Project continues without a skipped day. I will say the days are many that I find this difficult to do.

I have been asked, on occasion, how I produce something every day. I am puzzled, I choose it, I will it, I make it so. I am afraid some days quality suffers because the creative impulse is not as strong. The thing with 365 projects, they force a commitment. Human beings can do all manner of things given unwavering commitment.

Ends Means

Ending is uneasy
Like a fire gaining more ground
A tooth hard-aching
A fox with bright marble eyes
A cookie left in downpour.

Ending is ugly
Like a redwood crashing down
Algae in rivers
Crows hitting clear polished glass
A car twisted in collision.

Ending is hurtful
It wrenches one’s insides sore,
But when it is clear
It launches new adventure
Or allows living resumed.

Grief has been my space
Until I could roll the stone
Off my mental force
Free my heart of wrecking hurt
Life is flowing clean again.

I have begun work
Of clearing out those spaces
Become out of sorts
While I was so diminished
I could muster no energy.

It feels like the ash
Of many destructive fires
Is now swept away
The presence of blooming roses
Has replaced what marred bad days.

I will remember
For I could never forget
But my pain is less
I can live again without
The fear of misinterpretation.

Your challenge (prompt), should you accept it, is to commit to some period of days that stretches your limits and create something evey day for that time.

Gratitude List: 1. I have begun straightening out my living quarters. 2. There is already some progress, slow and steady. 3. I did not quit this work though it often causes me to feel inadequate.

Thank you for visiting. Please share your likes if you feel it. I hope you will return often and bring others.
