0+30. Joyfully (in this moment) admitting defeat (re: NaNoWriMo) :))

Just a quick post – haha I always end up writing a long one when I say that. (But… try try again :)):

I have not counted words

That is totally absurd

Not usual for me

I’ve gone word-count awol it seems

I’ve been writing poetry

entirely based on whimsy

it feels so darned good to me

β€”Iike abbreviating icebergs, see?

So failing NaNo rocks

since in the failing, I’ve removed other blocks.

I feel I’ve delighted in good friends!

What a beautiful and wild-flung end.

To you, fellow word-smiths,

my most heartfelt gratitude I send. ❀️

Your words shake me and make me

Your kindness slakes me and unbreaks me

The colours outside now call, so free:

It’s fall! It’s fall! πŸπŸ‚πŸ’₯🌀

Let’s run outside and rake the leaves!

.

Love,

xo Nadine 🌷

(And thanks

for experiencing NaNo, with me.

you’ve brought me all and any joy, here seen. :))

  1. Hehehehe welcome to poetry.. And it’s addictive… but a good one, I love it. With poetry one freely expresses themselves without directly offending anyone πŸ˜‹πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜† so you’re safe.

    1. Ah thank you dear Joseph. You are the Josephian master of your own special forms of it, ones I always love to read, and even better, *see* — in your awesome performance videos. It is addictive, that’s for sure, as for not offending anyone, all one can do is hope for the best I suppose, just like in any other kind of writing πŸ˜¬πŸ§πŸ˜„πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‰β˜―οΈπŸ™

    1. Awww that is so lovely… so wonderful that you make that super important time… you must be a wonderful step parent. Just gorgeous. Thanks DustBunnies, your posts have been inspiring and insightful and delightful. One of the best parts of NaNo for me. 😊

  2. This feels free, liberating, like I really can imagine you running outside to rake leaves, laughing wildly, happy and content. I love

    1. Charlie, I adore this comment. Coming from the poet laureate of particulate linguiverse, I feel especially honoured… and this video!!! Did you know, I channel Weird Al’s songstyle most days? I’m always impromptuing new lyrics to old tunes, especially when with the kids, hehe. Also, I think I need that outfit of the first woman in the vid lol – so awesome and perfect for the holiday season, too πŸ˜„
      Thanks Charlie πŸ€—xoxo
