FINALLY, SOME ANSWERS!
He calls this home,
I call it a vastly
I am lonely, unhappy,
but where else could I unashamedly
eat and write poetry, or
write and eat poetry, full time!!
I have suddenly realized at long last
that accepting this stress-free existence
is complete freedom, and in
listening to me, I hear
soft murmurings of happiness
coming over the waves in my mind
despite all my misplaced
efforts at being

Happy Anniversary, Jenny!
I wanted to take this opportunity to help you celebrate completion of your fourth year in this wondrous community by offering a few observations on this poetic revelation.
You have captured the essence of the existence people engaged in this process endure very effectively. Your ninth line with its twist to “write and eat poetry, full time!” exquisitely SHOWS the all-consuming nature of this addiction. “Lonely” and “misunderstood” for sure, but I would have to disagree about the “bored, unchallenged” aspect. I find the intricate nuances of these endeavors very challenging and far from boring. Indeed! I would be a snarling “grump” if I didn’t get my daily fix.
In the end, I am glad you have come to realize that these simple activities are the source of true happiness. I wish you continued success and hope those “murmurings of happiness” soon become a roaring crescendo.
Let the creativity flow from your soul!
My review has been submitted for consideration in "Good Deeds Get CASH!" .
