So in complying with my own challenge concerning habits and environment, I wrote my poem
- at home
- in the morning, (before even finishing my coffee)
- in my other language (why should English be emperor)
- in cursive (being a printing person)
Je me lève
et qu'est-ce qu'il y a?
toute une journée devant;
toute une vie.
Je regarde l'endroit
ou le soleil doit se lever
hâte de le voir
mais les nuages sont
trop plein d'eau
J'espère qu'il ne pleut pas
toute ma vie
pour rendre le jardin
I get up
and what is there
but a whole day ahead
a whole life.
I face where the sun should rise
eager to see it,
but the clouds
are too strong
too full of water.
I hope it doesn't rain
all my life
to keep the garden
I do apologize if it's taking time to get all the tickets posted on the sidebar. Teaching interferes today, but I'll keep up as best I can. I'll get around and actually read all your wonderful work likely tomorrow!
Update on the Links on the Sidebar problem: for some reason, I just can't add any more. Error every try. I'll try listing the missing ones here:
