A good Saturday morning to all of you, next to last summary for PYM 3/14 and then on to PYM 3/21, and some wonderful work today. Doubts and hope linger this week, and a wonderful them emerges that I hope inspires all at the cafe. Doubt, fear, loneliness are part of the trade of writers; however, Eric shares what I hope is a theme of the GDG – we are all waiting here trying to catch you, we are all in the woods with you, we are all tending your gardens of flowers, we are the voice of hope that calls you out of your abyss, we are those who will wonder at the painting on your ceiling when it is blank no more. Keep writing, keep sharing, thank you all these wonderful posts.
Kevin at newauthorlonline.com shared a poem that reflects on the beauty we see in flowers, but as the day’s turn we are left with doubt that they will last. Oh, and a wonderful new word: yesternoon. Chuck… will it inspire you like the backside of night?
The Moonlight Reverie at themoonlight847.wordpress.com shared a poem about looking into the abyss, the last of hope barely holding on in questions that might yield the answer needed to look up from the abyss.
Kristian at sfromthemindofkristian.wordpress.com shared two pieces with the GDG. A poem that calls the shy ones, the introverts to get out there and live without fear and sing! The short story speaks to the power that resides in the enslaved, those souls who are chosen and awaiting their redemption.
Matthew at theunfinishedscripts.wordpress.com wrote a powerful ode to the moon and imagination. Aside from the wonderful imagery and allegory of the moon, I am drawn to this line in particular: “The third option, the ceiling, is a blank canvas needing some form of imagination dripped upon it.” How many of us sit awake at night, torn by the clock that seems to taunt our inability to sleep, the mystery of the moon and stars, and the blank ceiling calling out to our imagination asking us to paint. A beautiful piece, and in a week of wonderful writing, it is one that speaks most powerfully to me.
Andrew in the UK at andrewagreen.uk wrote about being lost in the forest, however, I beg to differ ever so slightly with him. He is not alone, we are all there with him, alone and yet not.
I conclude today’s review with our very own Eric at believingsightunseen.com whose one line effort says everything we sometimes need to hear. We are not alone, there is someone out there trying to catch us, even if they don’t always succeed. They will still be there to pick us up. Thank you Eric.
