Wordy Wednesday: Rainstorm

Hey there! As I mentioned in last week’s Wordy Wednesday, this is a pre-written post because, at the time of its posting, I will be (am?) out of town. However, I hope you’re having a great week and I’ll tell you all about what I was up to when I get back.

This week’s Wordy Wednesday is a poem.

**********
The sleepy drip of
sunlit rain against
windows and held-out palms,
the paradox of feeling as if
everything is happening at once
when really nothing is happening
at all,
and I love this, the way a rainstorm
can feel like silence
and sunlight
can be a blanket
and summer can be a
feeling, rooted deep in your restless heels
and your dancing fingertips
and the tug of your lips, reaching for
a smile–
I am so tired but
I am so awake
**********

Thanks for reading, and see you when I get back!

Well, as far as I’m concerned it’s still Sunday…

It’s 12:15 AM on Monday, but seeing as I’m still up… let’s all pretend it’s still Sunday and therefore the weekend, shall we?

This week has been CRAZY!!! Between working drama camp, going to theatre rehearsals, getting ready for and having my grad party, and going to other grad parties, I’ve barely had enough time to think, let alone sleep or write this blog post. Sorry!

I’m currently sprawled out on my bed in my pajamas, my dog Sammy sleeping on top of my feet, really wishing I could sleep in tomorrow… but I’ve gotta be at work at 8:30 AM. Yaaay. (<– That’s called sarcasm, my friends.)

Sorry this is such a teeny tiny post and it’s coming so late. I’m just too exhausted to do much, right now. And a heads up? This next week is going to be crazy as well, between working at camp and doing theatre and trying to get to 25,000 words in my Camp NaNoWriMo novel (my new, adjusted goal). Plus, I need to start working on my lecture for the lil’ writing conference for teens I’m running this July.

But anyway, I’m about to fall asleep writing this, sooo… G’night, you!
