It has been a while since I last posted here. I can name a lot of reasons for abandoning this blog, but I’d rather not. I just want to start fresh today and move forward.
Last February 11, I posted a poem on Facebook. Then, I posted another the next day and the next, until I realized that I could not wait to write a poem to post every day. Given the slump I was in for the past months (I won’t even go to how long I have lost touch with my creativity), this was quite refreshing for me. So, I came to a decision. I will start a challenge for myself that I named, “A Poem a Day”.
While others have 365-day projects that got them posting photos everyday, I now have something just like it. My very own challenge, but aligned to what I can do and what I know best – writing poems. Just writing about this puts a smile on my face and I am so looking forward to making this challenge work.
Before I end this blog post though, I want to point out the very start of recovering my imagination and creativity. Yes, I started posting a poem every day on Facebook on the 11th of this month, but this was not the first poem I wrote this year. It was this:
So, I’d like to pay tribute to this poem, which sparked my way back into creativity this year by embarking on this challenge of writing a poem every day for 365 days and beyond. And, with this I say, welcome back to me and to days of doing something I enjoy very much.
P.S. I will be posting all the poems I have posted so far on Facebook here and all the others that I will be writing from hereon out.
