100 Day Project Three – Day 17

DAY 17 (January 22nd, 2018)

You are a gift, my friend.


What am I but undeserving
and you a trove of delightful turns—
a guiding star—
for both veins of gold and sorrow
run deep into arterial darkness—
into this—my suffering heart.

Guiding Star

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, my third, 100 Day Project on January 6th. My project is to write at least one first-draft stanza inspired by a poem, a quote, an idea, a painting—anything really. I’ll post the results at www.bradseverance.com/category/100-day-project-number-three/
