No Broken Promises

08/06/07 | by steveg [mail] | Categories: Poetry, Blogging

I didn't just create a hoopla about being back to blogging, just to go back to ignoring WITB. I have just been concentrating on the poetry is all. I have a reading this weekend to prepare for. I'll post an announcement soon enough.

Just an aside, I loved the rainy day yesterday. It was beautiful. I sat on my porch, drank fresh roast/fresh brew Brazilian yellow Bourbon, read Rilke, got inspired, and wrote some poems. Yep, poems about the rain. Great way to kill a few hours.

The new poems are what I'm working on now, refining-revising, and hopefully ready for this weekend. Sometimes it's nice not to blog.

lou'paris street, rainy day' is one of my fave rainy day paintings as well. last summer in chicago i escaped the 90+ temps and brutal sun by dipping in the AIC for a couple hours and stared at that piece thinking how comforting a light rain would be on a day like today. when i went to leave, it was raining cats & dogs outside..

kathyCoffee and bourbon, eh? I'll have to try that for my poetry block.

Actually, it's been good to be blocked because I'm finally revising some old, old poems.
