100 Day Project Three – Day 6

DAY 6 (January 11th, 2018)


This building sometimes sleeps,
sometimes warmly thrums
and one’s dreams get lost
in its monotonic vapor.

And then one hears the crows’ caws–
high-pitched, gravel-throated exaltations–
and out of the savage cleft of
Tiamat’s torn, water-laden corpse
gloriously rises the sun.

Marduk defeats Tiamat
Marduk defeats Tiamat

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/
