Who Do You Wrote For?

Who do you write for? Yourself or others? I only know I must write.

Virginia Woolf said, “Never mind the misses and the stumbles…” “The habit of writing for my eyes only is good practice, it loosens the ligaments.”

My morning pages do just that. Unadorned. For my eyes only. Throughout my life, my journal is my shrink, my confidant, my sounding board for rough drafts for poems, stray thoughts and published works.

Laying Life on the Line

she sat pen in hand

journal open before her

her life paced the lines

glory, inglory

marching cadence cross the page

bare and unadorned
