Beautiful Things


Posted // filed under Poems, The Writer's Life, Working Writer

OKAY SO FIRST OF ALL… yes, I missed my March 31 deadline for my poetry manuscript, Life’s a Song You Don’t Get to Rehearse, but I’m not gonna trip; I’m just going to set a new oneā€”April 24. And that’s that.

It’s been a pretty busy/hectic spring, and sometimes, when it’s too much, I bury myself in aesthetics. Something I can smile it. Like a pen holder that looks like a planter full of flowers. Except the flowers are pens. PENS! My eldest gifted me this gem and I cannot stop looking at it. Only my most adorable writing instruments will get the honor of living in here, no shade to my other pens. I love all y’all. I promise.

What beauty do you seek on the daily?
