October 5, 2010

So I fell off the writing wagon for a day. Didn't feel well, didn't feel like writing yesterday so I blew it off. Not a good way to start the month. Today I have pledged to get back on and stick with it every day. It's not the quality but the process that counts in these types of exercises.
So, here is today's poem.

Cat in Mourning

Oh brother where art thou

the light streams through the windows unbroken

by your shadow.

Where once I heard your padded footsteps,

the silence frightens me.

I find myself in a freedom I don’t understand

and so I retreat

to where I can feel the darkness inside.
