something beautiful

Af0sF2OS5S5gatqrKzVP_SilhoutteShe woke up to the melodic sound of birds, and a peacefulness in her mind. With arms stretched high, she screeched a yawn and dangled her feet from the bed. Her only agenda for the day was to write something beautiful. What lovely world would she visit today?

“What WON’T I do is more like it,” replied Maya.

For years, Maya had been dreaming of writing-filled days, with reading and peaceful ocean walks peppered into her week. She had stumbled upon all the ingredients of a fulfilled life, and her bright smile had become a permanent fixture on her face.

Whether it’s a gorgeous flower, a child’s silly smile, or the unique orange shade of a sunset, I plan to complete 108 posts this year that feature photography, poetry, or quotes. Wishing you peace this new year! — Jennifer ♥

poetry: a to z

photo-1448546120959-a4b0e3dd910dThroughout the month of March, I am going to focus on poetic forms, posting a different type most every day (poetry: a to z).

This will be exciting, as there are many poetic forms that I do not use, or remember much about. And there are some that I use quite often, such as haiku, pantoum, and villanelle.

I will include a definition and sample poem with each post. The sample poem will be written by me, or (more likely) a famous classical poet. Happy March!

the way
it was done
way back
when

telling stories
off the cuff
allowing
your mind
to wander

painting
pictures
for reactions
and
for the joy

creating
lives
