Day 6 is a trick. Moving right along. So happy to be getting so many likes and comments on the project. Thank you all for participating. Today’s poem, is the second word my friend Sunde suggested to me when I asked for people to contribute. A great word. A great concept. Something I preach to my kids every day. Hope you enjoy this little offering that I’m sharing…
Napster nappy shared unhappy.
Facebook allows you to share a post but not a friend.
You can suggest a friend, and share an idea.
You can like a share, but not share a like.
Pantyhose can surely be sheer.
Is it easier to shear a sheep than shag one?
Cher shared her affinity for bodystockings while dancing on a naval vessel.
Sonny Bono shared his love for skiing with a tree.
The tree was unmoved.
Sharing needles is dangerous business.
Needing sharing is a dangerous business.
Sharing business is none of your business.
Who I share with is between me and the engines at Facebook and Google.
Did you know that an algorithm keeps Al Gore’s rhythm.

Welcome to my effort. Yes, as a great procrastinator, it requires great effort to stay focused on something productive that matters to me. I’ll find any old excuse to traipse from project to project, and I rarely end up at the place I started. I find this maddening, and exhaustive. So it is with high hopes, and a greater grasp of self-awareness, that I embark upon staying the course so to speak.
I enjoy writing. Be it blogs, fiction, poetry, etc. I love the craft and the act of creation, the art in and of itself, for it’s own sake and end. I am happy to be able to do it.
