It's always a pleasure to see what guest is visiting Today's Little Ditty and Michelle H. Barnes so we can learn more about them, and to see what the challenge for writing is for the month. This time, Douglas Florian visited, with a challenge to write about "nothing". You can read the post here if you haven't read it. Already several poets have written marvelous responses to this challenge. Be sure to visit Michelle often!
Here is my response, ready for your weekend.
So What Are You Doing This Weekend? Nothing, but. . .
My weekend can be filled with nothing,
or capture empty hours with something.
While winter windowpanes show snow,
here is how the day will flow:
cartwheel through the minutes writing,
listen to Mozart as I’m rhyming,
snuggle into books inspiring,
crunch the deepening snow when hiking,
photograph the birds out flying,
follow tracks of rabbits hopping.
Upon return, the fire waits,
with tea and toast upon my plate.
Nothing’s all a state of mind;
something’s what I mean to find.
