today @ the Veteran Writers Workshop – i speak about therapy in styles i never tried before… i believe i was successful with the haiku’s and our writing coach told me that i did fine with the narrative portion of the haibun. both try 1 and try 2 – are one haibun in my opinion / one poem
Did reign mingle flight
devastated at night’s light
Heaven upside down
I went for a sigh after being sideswiped by mental health help not helping at all, leaving me feeling senseless in the hall after the intake session today, and so wish that I could be at play and at ease for a way to find relief.
Try 1 – think narrative is wrong! – but almost on track 20:02:11
feedback from our writing coach is that it is fine, and likes the Haiku’s which are not easy to create i may add!
Later in life I wish to find a rhythm for living, unlike my current day to day, where it is, i’m wondering if I will be able to get the tools out for the lapses of mental health difficulties that I often have in public places or places of privacy.
Take long walks often
See the shores ebb and flow go
The answer awaits
Meandering down a path that is every week therapy, this I don’t mind. I do find however, that the steady flow of not having a definitive answer is tiresome. Albeit, I can resign this fact to the need for consistent work to try to find a balance of intervention…, for any kind of life worth living
Sun sets wistfully
Stirring emotions long felt
Successful or not
So still I try again and again, and keep art as therapy close by, as I do this writing, an exercise, a workshop, and a therapy as well. I feel that these are therapies that keep me from all other similar times I fell, like fell into the darkness that scares me.
