Seeking perfection and falling short

In always seeking perfection with my writing I stop before completing what I am trying to express. A year passes and I have nothing I feel that I can share. Yet give me a deadline and within a few days (with help from friends) I write something as a gift - "Poppy".

My job does take up a lot of my time. At the end of the day I do find it hard to turn my 'work' brain off. Yet poetry is not something that comes second. It will always be part of expressing myself - my voice.

As another year draws to a close my resolution is - Share even what is not perfect. What I post may have a lot of rough edges: a work in progress. It will still be another piece of my view on the world - my dreams in writing.

P.S. Time to celebrate a little. Achievements today: posted a poem and applied 'haiku' label to all my poems that could be considered as such (19 posts).
