Perserverance

Image credit











The 2011 resolution to write
bountifully was
exceptionally fulfilled.
Is not that exciting?
Blogging frequently,
daily poetry scribbling,
writing two new very rough draft books,
connecting with writers
and poets and communities
all over the world to
my unexpected delight.
Nothing got published,
but that was not really my
heart's desire:
expressing my soul
was the goal.
I am a success!
My heart and treasure lie
in writing.
Not in exercise, food plans,
or other people's goals for
me.
Here's to an even more
literary 2012!

  4. I like this! I can easily add these to my daily renewing of my scattered thoughts! I especially agree with these lines:
    but that was not really my
    heart's desire:
    expressing my soul
    was the goal.
    I am a success!
    My heart and treasure lie
    in writing.
    Wonderful, Miss Diva!
