I am processing spending 40 hours a week staring at faces in a screen.

A Response Poem
My poetry challenge today was to write a response to a poem I'd written in the past. I went pretty far back. Over a year ago, it was late February and I was thinking about having guests over. What a difference a year makes.
Silly Silly Sunday
I love nature
It's a comforting thought for me.

Butter is the best
No matter what kind of butter. Coconut butter, sun butter, peanut butter, dairy butter. Nothing better than butter.
Tried Blackout Poetry today
Are you familiar with blackout poetry? You just "black out" the parts of the original text that you don't want to keep to create a poem. It can be complete different subject matter, the same subject matter, whatever you want. I tried it using Wikipedia's article on Wisconsin today. Let me know what you think.

Another Prompt from Amy Kay Poetry
The prompt I selected for today is really a prompt I do often "write about something mundane". I chose flossing.
I'm using another prompt from Amy Kay Poetry on instagram again! Today I selected "write a letter to your heart".

A Restful Poem
Shout out to another Amy Kay who writes poems, Amy Kay of #amykaypoetry on instagram (not me!). She recently posted some poetry prompts to "help us get through this strange time" and I picked one of her prompts for my poem today. The prompt I chose was "write a poem about rest" and it actually goes along with one of my favorite yin yoga poses, snail pose. It's reflective, curling inward, private, insulating, and restful. Here's the poem:

Today I got the hiccups
So you get a poem about hiccups. Really though, does anyone have as rough a time getting rid of these as me? I know as a yogi, I'm supposed to be able to do breath retention and I think sometimes it just gets in my head.
Spring is for the Birds
Spring is for the birds, and I mean that in the best way. I love birds and I even have a pair of goldfinch tatooted on my back. Another bird that I admire for it's plumage is the grand-looking blue jay.

A Beautiful Day
The birds were making some incredible music today.

I love Thrift Shops
I've been reading about the ills of fast fashion and so I took my birthday month to Clothes Mentor today. I had a brilliant time. Came away with 9 items at less than $12 each.
