I’m grateful that today my poem Sketch in Blue with Darker Water appeared online at Glass: A Poetry Journal.
It began as a color study, and became something else. It began as a way to thread color through a manuscript, and I ended up (so far) with five colors—red and yellow forthcoming; green and purple still seeking homes.
It went through many drafts in April 2015, when I decided to work on an exercise a day.
The lesson for me? Keep working. Keep exploring.
