Welcome to my latest exercise in an attempt to reach my goal of being a prolific writer in 2022. So, in addition to writing 1 short story each week (Because Ray Bradbury said you can’t write 52 bad ones – challenge accepted!) I will be attempting to post an original poem each day in April. This is not going to be easy – I’ve not really written poetry since college. So, these will be thrown together each day and not very edited.

I can hear you now – sucky stories and bad poetry? Sign me up.

Now is my life too.
Not just vacation on the horizon
Not just retirement
But now.

Now is my life too.
And that means that I have to unlearn
the dirty devices of the world
that taught me
Rest must be earned
You cannot have fun until the work is done
all possible moments must be productive
but now is my life too

Now is my life too
and I want to enjoy now
rather than anticipating later joy
that is not guaranteed
Like now is.
