The cold of Winter has turned my thoughts inward…
Reflecting on things that were;
Visualizing what’s to be.
Will I make the same mistakes and rise like the sea
In turmoil, solitude lost in my words?
The voices within just want to be heard,
Crying out to be released.
The long nights of Winter can increase
Your inspiration, as you withdraw to rest.
You’re free to search your soul and confess
Your innermost desires and secrets in verse,
Drawings, paintings, prose, or simply rehearse
Dialogue from imagined friends out loud.
Because only you can restrict or allow
The words, the images, the scenes that unfold
Into stories that must be told.
–Deborah A. Bowman

Lovely contemplation Deb. I think winter does draw more creativity when we are holed up in our caves, lol 🙂
I always think of Winter as my writing and creative catch-up time. So far I haven’t caught-up on much. lol

Lol, you crack me up! And what should I say? I’m splitting myself in two directions, buried in boxes and stealing moments to blog, jot down notes for my 2 new books and trying to keep above my to do pile! 🙂
You need to find some time for you and hubby, too!
