#FF – Poetry Edition

I was about to reblog one of my first #FollowFriday posts.  I am sitting in Starbucks, thinking about doing some Christmas shopping and the fact that I am going home to a working bathroom for the first time since the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.  #LongestSmallBathroomRemodelProjectEver

I am feeling a bit pressured.  I am not doing much shopping; unemployment will do that to you.   I am, however, hosting 20 family members at my house Christmas Eve and although the bathroom is working the project is not done and my house is covered in a thick layer of construction dust.  And, I have a job interview Monday, which is good news except that I need to get to a hairdresser tomorrow and clean my house so I can start baking and cooking for Christmas Eve.

Sitting in Starbucks because the library is closed and I of all horrors disconnected wi-fi at home; unemployment will do that to you.  And, I am really thinking I should either not post a #FF post or reblog an older post when I read my notifications in my reader.  It states: Shelia Sea liked your post and you should see what they are up to.  I allot myself thirty minutes to check out Shelia’s blog and see if want to and am able to write a #FF post featuring her blog.

I read periods, molasses and then mustard yellow.  Perfect Shelia Sea is a poet.  Although I could read and re-read and contemplate her poetry for hours, I do not have to.  And since, I do not have the time to her blog Shelia Sea Poetry is the perfect blog for me to happen across tonight.  I am drawn in by the rhythm of her poems, the succinctness of her words.  I envy her brevity for as a writer I struggle with the length of my work; seldom finding my words to be succinct.

I look forward to seeing more of her poetry appear in my reader and long to have the time to sit and enjoy her words over a cup of slowly sipped tea.

Until Next Friday.
