My Poetry Year: Entry #55

In which Your Humble Blogger finds herself back at the end of 2010:

"With Winter Approaching"

Most of these pages remain blank, and yet,
You tell me that the snow is fast coming
As if I weren't already cold.

As if I'd forgotten the trouble with the color white.

To be honest, though, the pages of my notebook aren't so much white as they are an ivory or a bisque. :p

Looking at my notebook, I saw that I don't have too many poems left to share from 2010. And I realized that when I named this project "My Poetry Year," I didn't make it clear with the word "year" whether I was referring to poems from 2010 or poems written within the twelve-month stretch from when I started, from March to March. So I wonder: should I put the poems that came after New Year's Eve 2010/2011 on this blog? How long should I keep this madness going?! I still can't believe that I've had enough of an attention span to keep this project going this long.


  1. I like this 'madness'. Keep it coming!

    And I never knew 'bisque' was a color. Learn something new ever day :) .

  2. *grin* I think it's a sign that adult life has seen me hitting the home improvement/hardware stores more than I ever have before. Only by looking at paint samples could I have ever found the color "bisque." At least the color doesn't carry the name of a more specific dish, like tomato-basil bisque. Could you imagine getting hungry every time you happened to look at your walls (or getting sick if it was named after a food you hated)?
