Looking back on the hectic days of February has brought many days of worrying and executing my to-do list for the biggest move of my life. In order to bring some peace into the up-down emotions of packing and coordinating the move to my new home, I needed to etch out some time for writing.
My thanks go out once again to Laura Shovan for creating a space for the 9th Annual February Poem Project of daily poetry writing. Below are two of my latest fast write pieces.

It is late now on Friday night and I spent all day unpacking, organizing my newly-constructed closets and my kitchen our Virginia home. It's been a long day so I apologize for dropping in late.
packing, unpacking, chugging along
like a train moving on
destination in sight
