I wanted to take a minute to thank all my followers who continually praise the work I am doing and take time to like or post comments. The last couple of weeks have been busy and I haven’t had as much time to read the blogs I follow. Please know that I am thinking of each one of you and hoping to read your engaging, funny and inspiring posts very soon. I’ll have more time after next week…at least I think…
Ok, I am excited to share another podcast with you.
Last week I listened to the podcast, DIY MFA. It was episode number 15, Master Class with Jane Yolen. You can listen here. In the interview, Yolen quoted Paul Valery, french poet and philosopher, and he said, “A poem is never finished, only abandoned.”
At some point you have to move on, so I decided to go back to the vault and select a haiku I wrote in October 2014 and see if I can breathe new life into the abandoned haiku. The first haiku is the one from last October, and the second one is for today.
I wait for the motion to stop—
scene never changes
monotony weighs heavy
on my heart
Do you ever feel like your poetry or prose is finished? Do you simply trust that you have done the very best that you can and move on?
Have a terrific Thursday!
