Poetry and Painting

I’d rather paint
when it’s time for writing.
My mind’s a jumble.
And clearly I am no saint—
I like to keep life exciting.

When I’m supposed to be painting,
that’s when I’d much rather write.
(Dear, please forgive me.)
More new forms acquainting—
Alas, my plight!


This is my Insane Cinquain, written for the 5-Line Poetry Challenge, Week 4: Insane Cinquain.

My Dear Readers

And now I must walk away from my laptop and return to my studio to paint. Why? Because—great news—I’ve been selected to participate in my first ever juried art show! It will be held the first weekend of March. But you mean a lot to me, so my regular posts will continue, thanks to the wonderful ability to schedule them in advance. The biggest impact is that I’ll be absent a little more than usual from conversations until about March 4th. In the mean time, say a prayer for me, please! Thanks!
