Not Writing a Book in My Head – Day 27
Old journal entries are great fodder. My poems in cursive as well as other entries are usually difficult to read. Deciphering in and if itself becomes an art form. I have used the ripe peach metaphor a few times. I know it can be trite as it’s so obviously not about a peach but in journal entries going with the flow is the whole point. In revision clarity evolves if the stars are aligned and you are willing to sacrifice your first born. Just kidding. The point, though, is the first thoughts contain the seeds. You’ve got a lot of tilling to do to get any fruit. Cheers. Hope these writing prompts are helping you get through National Poetry Month.
