Today’s post is going to be short & sweet, as Monday has used up all my metaphorical spoons.
But it is a prompt that is applicable to almost all poets. Including myself.
Sept 25th’s prompt is a Hunter S Thompson quote …”I measure my life in pages”.
I have written(to date) 2,588 poems during my total 18,842 days of life – YEP, I measure MY life in pages.
Pages are also a good indicator of my relationships; those that mean the most to me have spawned a dearth of pages, the lesser relationships may be documented in only a page or three.
I wrote a piece a few years back – in a time when my mind was on a similar path, measuring a relationship in words.
If you are a poet and you DON”T measure your life in pages … WHAT do you measure it in?
Tell me. I really want to know.
