       This was done today as pure 'stream-of-conscience', meaning I didn't stop, critique, or analyze anything as I wrote. I just let my pen take me where it would. If you haven't done 'stream-of-conscience' writing before, I HIGHLY suggest it; the results are unique, and rarely uninteresting.

    dotsThe Appreciation Of Springdots

    I find myself looking forward to the days more and more. I think of one morning melting into early afternoon, and it fills me with joy. The expectant Spring weather is chilled and windy, and I delight in the cold snap, the whipping against my bare arms, winds picking up, then dying down, then picking up again, as the season struggles with itself over and over.

    I find I appreciate the little things more and more. The raucous calling of a crow, the scrambling fury of a red squirrel, the ungainly dance of dead leaves as they scatter across the gravel driveway. I see great promise in this year. A gentle, smiling, bubbling feeling of respect wafts over me as I hunch my body tighter against the frigid air. I am severely underdressed for this time of year, and probably made an unwise choice dressing myself the way I did.

    But the thought occurs to me that I don't care. I am alive.

      I like to write in a stream of consciousness. Some of my best work happens that way. This is rich in imagery and that feeling of peace. I like that it is introspective yet easy to follow in it's simplistic appreciation of life and nature. It was just what I needed to start out my day today.

      Very Nice! ( Although that's not too constructive) I often write stream of consciousness on serviettes, reverse side of store receipts, borders of handy newspapers --when my journal or day planner isn;t handy. Though they often don't make it to another level, just the process serves as a springboard sometimes for a future write.

    I was once in a writer's group and each morning we would get a one word prompt sent via email---the idea was to write for 5 minutes ONLY after opening the email--whatever came into one;s head. There were some pretty amazing results, and oft times the thoughts generated led to more considered, constructed poems or prose.

    It is almost Spring here, so your thoughts are very easy to relate to, and your descriptions are so apt and evocative. Bad hair day?, socks don't match?, oops--cat hair on my navy sweater?---should I even be wearing that old thing?---Who cares-- Yes, it is just so good to be alive

    Great Submission

      Sometimes it feels good to sit back and appreciate the stark fact that you're alive. It can be invigorating, to say the least. That said, I like how relaxed this writing feels and how your thoughts flow smoothly from subject to subject.

    As you see the promise in the year, I see the promise in your poetry and writing! Keep it up, I admire your work.

      I love this piece! There is such a wonderful flow to it. I think the imagery you employ is stellar as well as the content. One comes away with a tiny piece, a little understanding of who you are. That takes talent.

    The strongest point of the write is the last line. It pulls it all together and gives it meaning. To be alive is everything. I also appreciate your words on the ordinary, which if see through gratefulness of life, is extraordinary.

    well done!

      I love your writing style. It's clear and beautiful. I don't know your actual thoughts but I had a feeling that you were a survivor or someone who has a tough life. Kudos to you!
