OctPoWriMo: Day 1

ReclaimingAs excited as I was to start yesterday, I just wasn’t feeling the writing spirit today, but I swore to myself I would power through and write something.  Aside from attention span one of my biggest issues is the overwhelming feeling that I need to be sure something is going to be perfect before I commit it to paper, and that’s… that’s not how reality works, and that’s definitely not how creativity works.

So, here’s my less-than-perfect – but written! – tanka.


Stalking stockinged feet,
Her eyes like honeyed amber
Tracking prey – my socks
Are two pale doves she covets,
Plump and slow, she hopes, with sleep.

This is Day 1 of OctPoWriMo!  Link ups are open until October 5th.
