Need A Verb

Movement abandons
I grasp for something…
…air to breathe
… am fast becoming
…an object

Need a verb –
transitive –
to drive me –

The wind lifted her
The sun inspired her
The day healed her…

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

      1. I always appreciate you Benjamin. I’ve just recently joined an editing circle and it makes me wonder. So your encouragement is even more important to me.


      2. It’s good to have these groups, and people you can lean on for feedback. I think your poetry is at the peak, but I also see that you intend to go even higher than that high. Can’t wait to see what words you’ll come up with next.

  1. I need verbs daily to keep me going. Always searching for healing and inspiration. Both require waiting and preparation. Rushing either is pointless, but when a surprise comes out-of-the-blue it’s like a blessing. Take care, V.J. πŸ™‚
