Keep Writing

Ideas scattered
No inspiration
Whether to seek
Or to settle
Accepting
The need to let
My mind rest
Not sure
I know how…
Pick up the pen
Perhaps
Motor
Movement
Will trigger
Creativity
Perhaps not-
Either way
Watching
Words appear
Somehow
Slows
Racing heart
Cools
Heated face
Relaxes
Frantic brain-
Powerful process
Placing thoughts
On a page

Summer break is coming to an end. I am preparing for school to start. We continue to deal with living in a pandemic. Not surprisingly, my thoughts are scattered. And that is ok. There is strength in honesty. ❤️

  1. Kelley,
    I love this poem. It so speaks to the power of writing to allow us to become present to our thoughts. These are the lines I want to reflect back to you,

    Ideas scattered
    No inspiration
    Whether to seek
    Or to settle

    AND

    Watching
    Words appear
    Somehow
    Slows
    Racing heart
    Cools
    Heated face

    See you in the next writing circle.
    Take care of your heart as you transition back to school.
    Ali
