#12weekrhymespeak Vow

This is my Wild Rhymer’s Vow
to bards of old and Don Miguel Ruiz I bow
To be Impeccable with my Word
in rhyme (I know that sounds absurd)

Six days a week to speak in rhyme
12 long weeks until it’s Christmastime
I give myself an hour a day of floating hours of prose
to be there on the spot for those
who may need comfort, for emergencies and what else (God only knows)

I vow to do my best to do this most peculiar thing
knowing at it’s heart is love
and to whatever it may prompt?
I’m surrendering…
