Optional (or April Fool’s)
Watch from the window
Cars failing to slow
Making their own rules
Red meaning go.
I hear at our academy, so many individuals lament not beginning their training sooner. We feel so much better, when we exercise, practice and on occasion hit things.
In a roundabout way, I discovered the reluctant poet in myself, through martial arts. I’ve always loved to read poetry but it seemed too impractical, too emotional, and far too revealing to write. I made it part of my Ei Dan Bo test (probationary second degree) to write every day. Surprise! What came out were poems. Now I kick myself for not discovering earlier how much better I feel when I use words to exercise, practice, vent, explore and learn.
April is National Poetry Writing Month and although a little behind in my posts, I remind myself that it is never too late to start. Joining the wonderful writers at NaPoWriMo.net for their 30 poems in 30 days challenge.
