DAYS 37, 38, 39 (July 18th, 19th, 20th 2018)
I’M LEFT ONLY WITH YOUR VESTIGE (fragement)
I’m left only with your vestige,
to roll you on my tongue
and taste your balmy vapor.
I may pluck your shade
from a scape subterranean
where you herded turn
in dull, susurrant circles.
Is that my hand outstretched
like a fishhook?
Are those my lips
like a lonely matron at a boarder’s door,
bending for the keyhole?
Disclaimer: I’ve fallen quite behind! In order to catch up, I’m putting Novel X on hold and concentrating on poetry!
The 100 Day Project is a creativity excavation. It’s about unearthing dormant or unrealized creativity by committing to a daily practice everyday for 100 days.
Creativity is a skill. The more we practice, the more skilled we become. Practice takes time. Practice takes commitment. Practice is a radical act in this speeded up world. Through practice, we develop a creative habit. Through habit, we reconnect with and know ourselves again as a creative being.
I started this, my third, 100 Day Project on June 12th, 2018. My project is to write at least one first-draft stanza inspired by a poem, a quote, an idea, a painting—anything, really (or nothing at all) and to write at least one hundred shitty first-draft words of my novel. I’ll post the results here.
