#SoIWroteAPoem: The Alchemist

As I come to the end of my month-long writing challenge, I feel accomplished. I’m proud of myself for having stuck to my guns and published a new post every day during August. 

The goal was two-fold. First, to populate my new blog with a robust repository of content. Second – and more importantly – to get myself back into the habit of writing creatively every day. It’s been wonderful. And difficult. And challenging. And rewarding. I feel like I’m back in my groove. Once again, I’m feeling inspired. Once again, I am one with The Flow.

The Alchemist

I know I asked for this
I am an alchemist
I’m the antithesis of low

I am transforming now
I am brainstorming how
High and how far I will go

God is at work within
Balancing yang and yin
Making me ready to go

Farther than ever
Like stars up in heaven
I’m finally one with The Flow
