Ready to Mark

“Celebrate milestones. Always. The end of a first draft. The end of a book. The start of a new one. Be kind to yourself. Be your own cheerleader…”

Hazel Gaynor

 

Clouded in fog

high points, achievements…

tumble and stack

Worthy of note

grayed by frustration

shadowed by doubt

it is an ever-longing

desire

to toast the small,

dance with the endings,

embracing the goal.

But

what of the end’s End?

when waiting can become

a stranglehold

And

the Thing achieved,

merely a step?
