|This is not "Wolf Moon" but I will be out on January 16, 2014 hoping to capture it.|
Wolf Moon witnesses a hunger,
casts a silver spell,
promises time is comprised
of many sunrises, sunsets -
encourages me to howl and listen
as the echoes gather strength, swirl -
questions whether I'll finally dig deep,
stake a claim, believe in myself.

This is for "Imaginary Garden of Real Toads - Kerry's Challenge - Resolutions". My resolution is to embrace and nurture creativity more thoroughly - to explore the gifts my kids say I have. To take art classes, to not be shy about calling myself a poet - something that actually makes me blush and cover my kids mouths when they say I am in public. My husband mentioned in the family 2013 Christmas letter that I enjoyed writing poetry… and I made him cross it out (didn't want people to laugh at me).
I hereby resolve to believe in myself more, to embrace my gifts… (that was hard to even write!) Why is it SO easy for me to tell my kids this, but not heed my own words?
Happy New Year everyone.
