“This is either madness, or brilliance.” -Will Turner “It’s remarkable how often those two traits coincide.” – Captain Jack Sparrow in The Curse of the Black Pearl
There really is a pirates quote for everything, isn’t there?
I believe I have mentioned that I will be taking a 10 day vacation to Idaho to see my family and get a break from my life completely. I have debated whether or not to write throughout my Christmas break because of how busy we always are baking, eating, giving, loving, and overall having a great time. But I love to write and I don’t want to get out of the habit, so I have decided to continue writing daily for the entire trip.
It’s very likely that I’ll skip a day or two, but I want to put it out there now that my goal is to write every day, even Christmas Eve. They say if you write it down there’s a 40% increased chance of it happening. It’s unlikely that the schedule is going to be so packed that I can’t spare a little time, even first thing in the morning if I have to. Expect a lot of poetry, because I likely won’t have the time to think of stories or life lessons, etc. every day.
As for today, I am going to provide you will a short poem about a wolf I drew as a Christmas gift for my cousin today, as if it were alive.
Kaitlyn’s Christmas Wolf
silver eyes pierce through the swarm
striking my heart
fur camouflaged in a snowy storm
like painted art
smiling so gently, small, and wise
vague familiarity we strove to identify
as winter’s goddess
