I really started blogging exactly five years ago today, when I wrote my first NaPoWriMo poem, having little faith in my ability to make it for the whole thirty days.
In the end, day-by-day, I did it. A year later, I did it again and when I came to day 30, I didn’t stop. Since then I’ve exercised a different sort of faith by writing every morning—doing a number of writing and photo posts, including at least one poem or story, every day for the past 1,460 days. (This post will be my 4,074th one.)
The pool exercises I once did faithfully in a water aerobics class three mornings a week at the clubhouse pool, I still do at midnight in my own pool under the stars and moon, surrounded by the blossoms that fall from the tall Washingtonian palm trees that rise like giants in the night air above the pool.
I swim with the moon,
stars strewn like wedding flowers
in this midnight pool.
