Thank you for joining in conversation with poems.
In 2006, I began writing a poem a day. At first it was just a challenge to myself. Could I do it? I didn't think so!
I didn't realize then how this practice would change everything. Poetry was no longer something on a page, it became a way of being in the world, changing the way I move through the day. Poems became the language of connection--connecting us to ourselves, to each other, to the world around us. In 2011, I created A Hundred Falling Veils to share the poems because I realized they sometimes help others find these connections, too. If you are not yet receiving the daily poems, you can see them at A Hundred Falling Veils. That is also where you can register (in the upper right corner) to have them sent to your inbox via Mailchimp. Or you can subscribe by visiting https://wordwoman.us13.list-manage.com/subscribe?u=6fb61aa688cbb45003f089296&id=4813ec6c04
It is perhaps foolish to put my first drafts into the world every day, but as Rumi said, "Be a fool."
If you enjoy these daily poems, please support me writing them with a donation (I won't really buy coffee, I'll pay for the online platforms I use to make them available for free). And if you're interested in buying a book (to see what the poems look like beyond their first draft form), please visit http://wordwoman.com/
And, friend, thank you.
