After August

Sometimes it’s nice to shift the creative focus a bit and work on something else. It’s been a long while since I sat down to compose any new piano pieces, but that’s just what I’ve been doing for the past week.

I have to say it feels good to write music again! I’m definitely not a pro at this thing – just like in poetry, I write what moves me using the tools and sometimes dubious talents I’ve been given. (How’s that for self-deprecating?)

But I’m happy to share it with you (even if it’s not exactly poetry). Here’s After August – I hope you enjoy!

I have stumbled
upon the occasion
of your lips
and wander wondrously
betwixt – bewitched

Just a quick note to say I’m still writing. But I’ve also been keeping myself busy with composing a new piece of music – I know! the first in quite some time! So if posts are tapering off, that’s why.

Also, I am quickly heading into the fall busy season at work (like being sucked into a black hole) but I am determined to keep up some form of creative pursuit in spite of the brutal days. Normally I would say “see you on the other side” in another couple of weeks, but I think I’ll just let what happens happen – and if I can squeeze out a few pieces of poetry in the melee, then so be it.

And stay tuned later this month for a little giveaway! Who doesn’t like free stuff?!
