We live much of life amid unique choices. Joy is anchored in The One beyond our life.
So much to do, so much to think,
so much I need a resting place.
With days of writing on the brink,
I'll need some coffee in my space.
A few more hours before we start
to write the book of this year's gaze.
Experience we would impart
to story write in 30 days.
For now, I'm resting at the line,
that bids me, "Strike a runner's stance."
I'll go when the time is duly mine,
and leave no whit to whimsied chance.
I've prepped, and read it, prepped so more,
but now I stop to eat and sleep.
Past midnight, then I will explore
the life my character's in so deep.
The starting line with chalk and dust,
now builds intensity to run.
We'll find great words to show. We must.
In 30 days we'll dance in fun.
