July 25, 2012 Broken Streak!

I am sorry to say that on this day I broke my 589 day streak of writing a poem every single day–not on purpose, not by plan or arrangement or pre-meditation but by sheer forgetfulness.  I am sorry to report it and disappointed that it happened but it’s true.  In my defense I will say that I’ve been working very hard on my book, which will contain poems from 8/27/10-8/27/11.  But still.  No poem was written on July 25 and I’m not going to cheat.  I will continue on, however!

  1. I missed your poem (I usually look every day or two) but I am very excited to hear about your next book! Great run with a poem a day! You should be quite proud of the run! And I’m glad you will continue!

  2. Well, I do wish I hadn’t missed but it was bound to happen sooner or later. And I wasn’t even traveling or anything! Just really excited about a secret thing I was doing yesterday and really into this other writing. C’est la vie.

  3. I can’t imagine producing a poem every day for 589 days…and yours are not any ole poems, they are very good! Full of wonderful imagery, things worth pondering, interesting points of view, language that supports the meaning of the poem… Don’t be so hard on yourself…I love it that you just forgot!

  4. Thanks, Lyn! I have really appreciated your support throughout. And thank you for these lovely comments. I guess I knew that one day I would forget or something would happen. It’s a bit odd that it happened just like that–but yes, let’s embrace the fact that I just plain forgot! Thank you!
