so here's to
conventional wisdom.

1. relocate
to some forgotten shore.

2. fall desperately in love with
     i. the ocean
     ii. the sky
     iii. the honey sunrise and
     iv. the steelgray winter dawn.

3. sink
soul-deep into the water and
breathe.

4a. search out the requisite words
     i. from behind white and blue curtains
     ii. and underneath clam shells
     iii. and in the wakes of fishing boats, and

4b. pluck them from the ceaseless
scrawls of sunlight
against the slopes of waves.

5. make time for
     i. poetry
     ii. and other
        selfish
        pursuits.
For the :iconpoeticalcondition: bi-monthly prompt: Write a poem using "You Need to Have a Plan..." as the title.

I've been wanting to use the phrase 'poetry and other selfish pursuits' since February 24. Dating things for Glory Be comes in handy. ^^

I have felt the guilt of "selfish pursuits," but like when with [you know who], i cannot help myself.

we're all entitled to some selfishness now and then.
