Every day

release some of the pressure,

let the steam of words blow

rising like mist

falling droplets of thought


You can make room for new




to pen

if you drain your brain




Lots of poetic devices in action here, as well as good advice.  Thanks syl for the image!

    I am a firm believer in the William Stafford practice of daily writing. His practice isn’t unique, of course, but that’s the guy who got me to pay attention and spread some ink everyday.
