100 Day Project – Days 53 and 54

DAY 53 (July 2nd, 2017)

Carl Sandburg
Carl Sandburg


The fog comes
on little cat feet.
It sits looking
over the harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.

My Commentary

Each step will take you
as far forward as the light
it lets in.

May your path shine.

DAY 54 (July 3rd, 2017)

Percy Bysshe Shelley
Percy Bysshe Shelley

The Waning Moon

And like a dying lady, lean and pale,
Who totters forth, wrapp’d in a gauzy veil,
Out of her chamber, led by the insane
And feeble wanderings of her fading brain,
The moon arose up in the murky East,
A white and shapeless mass.

My Commentary

The moment may heal
if the physician applies salve
to your wound.

The 100 Day Project

The 100 Day Project

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 100 Day Project on May 11th. My project is to read a poem, and write at least one first-draft stanza inspired by that poem. I’ll post the results at www.bradseverance.com/category/100-day-project/
