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. In 2011, I created A Hundred Falling Veils to share the poems.
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 buy groceries). 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.
Thank You, Rosemary! And thanks to Danna Schmidt for introducing me to your poetry.
Many thanks for your sharing your gift with the world, for the beauty and the heart in your words.
Your words are always beautiful. Some days, though, they especially speak to me. Thank you.
