We Write Poems Ambidextrously

except for
writing, this life’s scrawled


The prompt was to experience writing using one’s off hand. For me that is left-handed. I confess to not actually writing with my left hand … yet. Does it count if I’m writing while on vacation in Texas (and without adequate wifi or phone signal)? I will write more while down here, so expect to see actual left-handed poetry in the future.

      Joseph, Good to know. 😀 Now if only all those calories I’m consuming didn’t count, that would be perfect–tiramisu, shrimp marinara, stuffed crab … (so worth it!)

      Thank you for the visit and kind words. I’m looking forward to more writing, but I’m visiting family. As you might guess, our time is eaten up with eating (a Southern approach to reunions), reminiscing, shopping, etc. I really enjoyed thinking through the prompt, even though I didn’t pick up the pen for it. Looking forward to trying it though. I have that there are things hidden in the left hand that the right just can’t see.

If you leave tracks, I'll find you.
