Hart's Farm

Poem: "Revontulet"

This poem came out of the September 5, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by prompts from [personal profile] mdlbear and [personal profile] wyld_dandelyon. It also fills the "Northern / Southern Lights" square in my 9-3-17 card for the [community profile] ladiesbingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by [personal profile] mdlbear. It belongs to the Hart's Farm series.

Hard Things

Life is full of things which are hard or tedious or otherwise unpleasant that need doing anyhow. They help make the world go 'round, they improve skills, and they boost your sense of self-respect. But doing them still kinda sucks. It's all the more difficult to do those things when nobody appreciates it. Happily, blogging allows us to share our accomplishments and pat each other on the back.

What are some of the hard things you've done recently? What are some hard things you haven't gotten to yet, but need to do?

Poetry Fishbowl Update

I have sent out prompter copies of yesterday's poems. If you didn't get yours for something I thumbnailed, ping me and I'll resend. I still have more poems to write, though.

[personal profile] ng_moonmoth has sponsored "Eddies," co-sponsored "Accommodating Celebrations" with [personal profile] mashfanficchick, and put a big chunk into "Two Foxes."

Slated for my parents: "Even for an Old Soul," "The Choices That Make Families," "The Gifts That Move," "A Haven in a Heartless World" (cosponsor), and "Can't It Just Be What It Is?"
