“I hold a beast, an angel and a madman in me an enquiry as to their working and my problem is their subjugation and victory, down throw and upheaval and my efforts their self – expression.”

Dylan Thomas

Sounds like he’s been on my insides.

Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are, what you believe shine through every sentence you write, every piece you finish.

John Jakes

I need to listen to this one myself. I am forever editing what comes out of me..to fit what – I don’t know

………………………………………………………………..

How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.

Henry David Thoreau

For some reason the person that came to mind when I read this was Hemingway.

These are my contributions for this week.

CHANCE

his first months of life were spent in a shoe box

in the top dresser drawer wrapped in

a very warm blanket

poor folks incubator

fed with a dropper the midwife offered

very little chance for survival

his momma named him

Chance

from a fragile start

he weathered the storms of life

grew into an oak

A Freku

A combination of a freeverse poem summed up by a haiku

Sunrise

peeking above
the shimmer of the ocean
this morning’s sunrise

reverence to a new day

from her perch on the mountain

I get my prize

is like climbing Mt. Fuji
