Trading in a lab coat for a beret isn’t easy.
Stories in the brain
scamper like sugar fueled toddlers once on paper.
Thirty days seems like a long exercise,
but it makes a mind more limber
with each lesson learned.
Every day, write something new,
or refine an errant scrawl.
Learn the confines of the project,
then make it your own.
Get to the heart or guts quickly.
This D-town girl be but little,
but she has a fierce love for the written word.
And even if thunder and lightning
don’t bring the rains that bring
the blossoms I wanted,I still flew.
And that's better than just thinking about it.
