April Love Prompt: 5 Years Ago

This year I’m celebrating National Poetry Month by combining  NaPoWriMo’s daily poetry challenge with Susannah Conway’s April Love daily photo prompts on Instagram. Each day of April, you will observe the same photo in my Instagram feed on the righthand sidebar that you see in my blog post along with an instapoem. We shall find out at the end of the month whether this was a brilliant career move, sheer laziness or a fool’s errand. 

Until then, care to join me in these creative waters where even fools fear to tread? The water’s fine.

  1. I believe “rueful laugh” describes my reaction. Certainly this describes no one I know; nonetheless, I seem to know the feeling. Not an easy time of life, the 50s.

  2. I have this possibly delusional view that it takes a certain type of wisdom to realize just how much you don’t know after well more than a half century of trying to gain wisdom. This way I get to tell myself that I have a tiny iota of wisdom even though I have next to none. Another stunning photograph!
