Looking back..

if only I had the heart
to stay with what I started
perhaps my year too
would have been complete
but when I look back
I have not a single regret
for the month that began
went with the still flow
flooding over into another
felt both beats of love
and beats of utter hatred
yet two months I find
to have changed my life
in ways that I’ll never forget

For January and February, when despite quitting the attempt to write post-a-day for 2011, I managed to write 75 posts, thanks to my muse, and to a haiku challenge. I fell in love, and felt free and light hearted once again. Yet somewhere, a pang of hatred too. Mixed emotions you could say. No regrets for anything whatsoever. Inspired by and shared with, Lady Nimue‘s month’s challenge.

(’11. dec 26.)

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. It’s a beautiful way of expressing your thoughts. I havent tried participating in post a day yet. Wanted to go with the flow of what and how I feel. Sometimes there is just no inspiration but when it comes, it just cant be stopped. Just be myself, I guess.

    I have enjoyed your pieces over this year and I am definitely looking forward to more next year! Happy holidays and merry 2012! 🙂

    • I haven’t either, it seems challenging, and I’m not sure if WP will have it in ’12 again. 🙂 but I intend to try any ways 😀 Looking forward to reading you too in the coming year, Clarice!
