100 Day Project Three – Days 37, 38, 39

DAYS 37, 38, 39 (July 18th, 19th, 20th 2018)


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?

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 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.
