Five Truths

Jessica at 9 to 5 Poet posted an idea called Five Truths - sort of a meme where you post five things that are true about yourself in the moment. She says "So, if you would like to try it, all you have to do is write at the top of your journal page 5 Truths. Then, write one sentence (minimum) for each truth. Don't force it, just let the sentences create the form. If a poem doesn't occur to you after writing them down, pick one of the truths and write about that."
I liked the idea, so here goes:

Five Truths:
1. I'm reading Theodore Roethke and listening to Josh Ritter.
2. I don't need to have it all figured out right now.
3. My hands are my favorite part of myself.
4. I'm craving cooler weather - and RAIN, sweet rain.
5. I love the way marigolds smell.

Happy Independence Day

To anyone reading in the US - have a wonderful and safe July 4th holiday. My own celebration is sure to involve time with family, sparklers, and that small-town wonder, corn bingo.

So - I may not be posting for PT this week, but I'm hoping the respite from everyday life provides some good fodder for poetry.

Must be the time of year to redecorate, as I notice some of the other PT bloggers are doing also. I would love some feedback about the new header and color scheme! I was going for clean, easy-to-read, and soothing, plus of course reflecting the color in the title.

Does it look too somber? That's really my only concern. I'm fairly upbeat, and I wouldn't want new visitors to think that I am a sad and depressive person.

So - let me know what you think!
