sort of measuring

sort of measuring
time by the expiration
date on a bottle
of painkillers is
realizing that
the journey*
hasn’t been
all that bad –
let’s divide and
conquer what’s
left of it before
the potency
wears off

* Happy New Year’s Eve! Thank you to WordPress and Editor Cheri Lucas Rowlands for highlighting my six-year journey of daily posts. You can check it out in today’s Discover post round-up.

Thanks to the post, I’ve also discovered Andy Townend and his Poetry 101 Rehab prompts, a weekly post to inspire fellow bloggers. The above is inspired by this week’s prompt, Odyssey.

Thank you, as always, for reading, and have a healthy and peaceful new year!

    I read about your 6 year journey, and can’t decide if I’m impressed, inspired, or just jealous. The stress of the past 2 years killed my creativity, but I set a goal to post 2-3x/week. I met my goal this week – only 51 more to go! Love your writing.

    here’s to a glorious 2016!
