Closing out Spring Break

It’s been a fantastic week being off from school. I’ve finally managed to get some things completed around the house which I had been putting off. I also started writing again. I’m not diving into a novel, pushing out short stories, or creating thought provoking poetry, but it is a start. I admit the temptation to become a couch potato has been tempting, but avoided. Netflix has not been completely put on hold, but I will say I’ve used my time more efficiently. I will continue striving towards my goals, and accomplish all I have planned.

Time quickly slips by,
procrastination kills dreams,
Oh, what could have been.

Day 5

Well where has the time gone? It’s late in the evening, and I’m just now getting to my computer to write. Missed my morning opportunity as I woke up late, then had to head over to the DMV. I really love the DMV. Such a wonderful place to spend the morning. But even as I sit her now, there seems to be a fire which I must put out. So before I go…

Life will throw us curves,
but keep your eye on the ball,
and keep on swinging.

Day 4

Whew, not as easy to get up this morning. Felt like staying in bed. Going to be that much harder once Spring Break is over and I’m back to school. I’ll have to find that extra time somewhere if I want to continue writing, journaling, etc. I do have more time in the evening to write, but is seems my mind is always shot when I get home. The other issue with writing in the evening is the house is too busy, I’d have to wait until everyone was asleep before sitting down to write. Considering I’m usually one of the first ones to crash, that seems to be an unlikely scenario. As for now I’ll enjoy these quiet, non-work mornings, while I have them.

Clovers in full bloom,
yard shines like an emerald,
happy St. Pat’s Day!

Day 3

Day 3 of waking up again and actually opening up my laptop and writing. Working on a couple of sonnets but the words to finish each one elude me. I can pull a haiku out, but that’s about it for right now. I also need to start working on my book again. But for now I shall continue with this morning ritual in the hopes of developing some good habits.

Early morning thoughts,
elusive and fast fleeting,
a blank slate remains.
