I begin, as I often do, without a clue as to what I am going to write. Trusting in the process, I let the words flow knowing, they will. They always do when I get out of my head and into my heart.
And my heart is saying, it’s Friday. Let’s enjoy a Friday Frolic,
And, because I met with my writing circle last night, I thought I’d share a poem I crafted. It’s one of those “I’m not sure where that came from but it’s fun!”
Which really does make for the best kind of writing experience. To just let go and let flow! Words. Images. Thoughts. Ideas.
The poem was inspired by a poem by Paige Lewis, I’m Not Faking My Astonishment, Honest, Every time we meet in the circle, our amazing guide, Ali Grimshaw, of the blog, Battery Flashlights, reads us a poem to trigger our creative responses.
Here’s what happened for me when I let “I’m Not Faking My Astonishment, Honest.” lead me into writing without knowing where my pen was going.
Thank you to my writing circle guides. You constantly inspire and excite me to keep on turning up, writing and exploring life through words and images..
I Don’t Know Where I’m Going ©2023 Louise Gallagher I took a trip but didn’t know where I was going and found myself lost planning how to get somewhere I didn’t know because I didn’t know I wanted to go there. Confused, I phoned a friend but they hadn’t planned on my calling while I was on my trip to nowhere and were not home so didn’t answer leaving me even more confused about where I wanted to plan to go. Lost in planning how to get somewhere I didn’t know where I was going I gave up on getting anywhere and stayed where I was until I could think of a better plan.
