a proving ground
drawn in in pencil stokes

a circling
toward a center
or lost in a jumble
of tasks,

post-its litter the floor.

This is my #1 for NaPoWriMo. I am feeling a pull inward. This venue with be an exploration of that for me. So little will be polished. More, I intend it to be reflective of that pull.

Thank you!

  1. I like this poem, especially the opening line. I like how pencil can be flexible and forgiving. It's a good image. I am looking forward to your posts this month. :)

  2. Audrey,

    Reminds me of a spider-graph which is sometimes necessary, when there are too amny tasks to cope with at once. A sketchy outline of the demands, can give a little bit of clarity; then the most urgent can be attended to..The rest may well fall away, as litter!!

    Good luck with your NaPOWRIMO challenge!

  3. Yay! I am looking forward to exploring the inner pull with you byu reading your poems. Cool!

  4. Best wishes on the challenge this month. If this is a sampling then we are all in for a treat in April.

  5. i can never find postits when I need them. you have them all? :) ~
