Off and on for the past few years I have taken part in the write 31 days challenge. Why write 31 days? Because. I know, not a good answer eh? But seriously, one of biggest joys each week is taking the time to let one word marinate through me and see what comes out of it. Sometimes I’m quick off the mark, and other times I need to let the word marinate for a while. It’s a lovely challenge, and taking the time to meet is excellent.
If you want to take part you can, but I think at this point it’s too late to officially joy. BUT if you do join in, share your link in the comments below and I’ll stop by and visit you.
We’ve been given a list of 31 days which we are free to follow OR we can do our own thing. I’m hoping to use the words provided but I might on occasion deviate.
Today’s word is WHY. So here goes five minutes. 🙂
It’s a question I’ve asked a lot lately.
Does a simple gardening job
Take me all the blooming day to finish?
Do I have a lad who
Gets caught up on word meanings
And gaps in conversation.
That sometimes he forgets to reason it through.
Do I have a man who loves me full well?
When I so often feel like a horrible wife.
Did God send his son to die for me?
Me, a horrible excuse for a believer.
One who persists with doubts and wonderings.
Does love seem so hard to understand?
It often makes no sense
With what one person deems as a loving act
To another it’s just something you do
Do I love writing poetry?
Why does it speak to my heart?
Why do I want to write 31 days?
Do baby bunnies sometimes fail?
Is is something genetically wrong?
Or is a sign of a hidden illness,
A immune system reaction that dumbs a baby down?
Are goats so very cute
and Chickens so adorable?
When I don’t have room to raise either?
Does the cat persist in believing
That I am the one who feeds him?
When consistently it’s my lad who does so?
Do I have to run out of time
even when I’m a fast typist?
Stop: why write 31 days?
So these are the free writes we’ll be handling this month
