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.

Anyone reading this who wants to participate, consider yourself tagged!

Hi Sasha -- I like this -- I think you have a poem in either #2 or #5. Perhaps in the same one? :)

1) It's beginning to rain.
2) The wind is getting stronger.
3) The sky is looking gray
4) My children are not at home.
5) Except for the leaves rustling and the birds chirping, it is very quiet.
