Day 8 – Sunday, March 27th
I will coddle the Spring hours like a downy chick.
See how its tiny body shivers, and how its eyes
drink the breezy blue milk.
How it will love when it flits and flutters
the buoyant bright air,
and the high bobbing perches,
and nestling at night with another in the shadowed nest.
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 fourth, 100 Day Project on March 20th, 2022. My project is to write at least one first-draft stanza inspired by a poem, a quote, an idea, a painting—anything (or nothing at all) and to post a photograph that I took this spring.
