I’m delighted to report that I’ve been writing and posting daily poems for six months now (since Nov. 1, 2022), and it’s truly become a nourishing daily practice. The words and images show up fairly easily most days, and, when they don’t, I find that I’m the one getting in the way. Then the practice becomes to breathe, maybe take a walk and get out of the way so they can show up.
They’re not perfect, and I’m reminded daily to post them anyway and not be attached to how many people like them or comment on them… or don’t. But when they do, I have to say, my heart soars.
So thank you, if you’ve been reading and liking them… whether you hit that button on not. You can also sign up (in the little box on the right side of the home page) to get an email about my daily posts at my website, https://janishaag.com/ , (and you can see the poems there with nifty things like italics, which I can’t do reliably on FB).
I’m grateful to folks who post their art and/or words daily online like James Crews, Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer, Joe Chan, Kathy Keatley Garvey, haikuandy (aka Andy Dugas) and so many more. You don’t have to post your creative work daily to allow it to make someone’s day… you just have to share it in some way.
Mahalo nui loa on this gorgeous Lei Day, which it is in Hawaii!
I look forward to the poems. Thank you for sharing your art.
