April is right around the corner, sort of, and that means the bi-annual Poem-A-Day challenge is coming up soon. I am not great at free verse, but I wanted to start stretching my free verse writing muscles a little early this year, hoping to settle in to a style or flow in that category. Being that we have stepped into the Lenten season, as we fast, as we search, as we wait, there is much to dig into within the darkness of the season.
I'm glad for where I am
But getting here cost me
It feels like
My very bones will break trying to dam up the heavy tears
Pooling always in my heart
For what was lost.
Hope you'll consider joining the PAD Challenge next month at writersdigest.com. It's so good for soul and craft.
