Posts in a row today.
Fifty times facing a blank page
And populating it
With thoughts in the shape
Of words
Hoping that the blog post
I’ve willed into existence
Will mean something to
Someone other than me.
50 times dipping my feet
In the glassy lake of the writing process
And being unsure
If this one will float,
Looking over my shoulder
To see if inspiration
Will join me along the way.
Two score and ten times
Feeling the quick rush of anxiety
As my finger hovers over the
“Publish” button
And wondering how long
I can keep this up.
