Got the kids to bed exactly three hours ago and dashed off to a lovely evening of blessing two pregnant mamas in my Holistic Moms chapter and honoring a third whose child chose to come before we could bless her back in September.
My camera was out of battery, but I had in mind a photo of the moon from the other day (which I just realized did not turn out as I expected, so I’ve messed with it!). So here is the non-haiku I came up with on the way home to make sure I pull off this month of blogging. (How did I only just now realize that I am missing two days on my list below, even though I have without a doubt written every day!?)
There is so much I want to say about promise and expectation, but my health tells me this is it for tonight.
Nothing but the moon
is as beautiful and full
as a pregnant belly
After casting aside my poetry hat for far too long, my NaBloPoMo plan is to write a poem — and to take and post a photo — every day in November, spending less than half an hour on both. The hope is to drill down, to focus, to look for and create beauty.
