Whiskey + Moonlight © Day 8

DAY 8: I wake up disoriented. I reach for you but you are not there. Your scent hangs in the air, like a cigarette haze. The soft + hard of you lingers in my bed, a reminder of the good old days. We are twin-stars in orbit around the sun, waiting for catapult or for burn. The moon dips to light the way for others in need of enlightenment or saving. I watch the birds outside the window, the sway of the blossoming branches, the silent rush of falling water, and for the moment, I find myself floating with the heartbeat of the earth and longing for something I cannot name.

WHISKEY & MOONLIGHT©

Hi everyone!

Last year on 1/1/18, I began a twitter story that was supposed to run all year, but due to a flu that knocked me down for about three months and then other life stuff, the story didn’t get that far. Although it is not the first day of the year, and it’s a year later, I’m going to begin the story again. Last night on Twitter I posted Day 1. Today I will post Day 1 and Day 2 here and continue until…whenever. Let’s see how long I can write it.

I hope you enjoy it!

Day 1: This is not a love story… How could it be? It shouldn’t be, but last night a warm scotch and the shadow of a super moon illuminated the black hole of a cold broken heart…and I glimpsed things I never knew before… #kw2018/2019twitterstory

Day 2: The dance of Whiskey & Moonlight swirls and pulls life out on to the page. Raw, disconnected. Echoed silence whispers to me- go into the dream and I will be there… the shadow cast is wide, no more going inside… #Whiskey&Moonlight©2018/2019 #kw2018/2019twitterstory #fiction

 

Stay tuned.

Poem:
Redo You

Don’t speak— just read.
Take captive the thoughts
you ought to heed.
Imagine them

from your mind.
Take them back—
Press rewind.
Oops, how do you undo?
Next time better think it through.
Forgive, forget.
Never regret.
Just hit reset.
Now, start anew,
and redo you.

DAY 6 REVITALIZE ~ The Season of Writing

Day 6: REVITALIZE

revitalize-churches


To imbue something with new life and vitality.

“Trust in what you love, continue to do it, and it will take you where you need to go.”
― Natalie Goldberg

Revitalization isn’t starting over, it’s the first step in renewal, a blending of old ways with new ways. For autumn, find any neglected, forgotten, mundane thing in your life and revitalize it. Whatever you find, let it take you out of your comfort zone for a moment, and write out any and all emotions, thoughts, or ideas to grow within your creative endeavor.

Daily Journal:
Look through your writing, pick something that stands out. Play with it. Revitalize dormant words with new energy. Create something new.

Poem:
Embracing My Essence

My essence of being in which I remain,
The pursuance of dreams I wish to obtain

Melody of my soul shall sing me a song,
Embracing my essence to which I belong

Facing myself, What shall I find?
Trials endured through the hands of time

Parallels of my mind echo away,
Speaking the moments of my yesterdays

Recollection of memory embedding my thoughts,
Untangling my spirit amongst the knots

Conquering confusion consuming my soul,
Releasing the madness taking its toll

Pursuing the future with hope by my side,
Beauty of my essence no longer shall hide

Shining my light upon my darkened heart,
Stitching the pieces fallen apart

Revitalization of past stories told,
Essence of my healing starting to mold

Beginning again on this long winding trail,
Into my future my essence shall sail
~Roxie Perry

Ever grateful,
Juliet & Colette
