500 Poems

WordPress just told me that with Leftover Words I had posted 500 poems.  Honestly.  I am so amazed.  I know they are not 500 amazing poems.  But when I look back over them, or leaf through the pages of them in book form, I stumble over many I’m fond of, many I remember arriving out of thin air and dailiness, the regular habit of trying regardless of mood or inspiration. This everydayness, no drama, just keeping at it and being kind to myself on the days it doesn’t work out–this teaches me more about creativity than any book or class ever could.  To you, my reading friends, I say–Go on.  Try.  If I can, you can. Do it.  You know you want to. So, start. Today.

P.S. I’m so excited for you to begin.
