New Series: Poems, Prayers, and Promises

On Ash Wednesday, I will begin a new practice, of writing poems, prayers, meditations, and other short pieces for spiritual and liturgical use, inspired in part by Stephen Fry’s The Ode Less Traveled, Erik Walker Wikstrom’s Simply Pray, and the liturgical calendar.

I make absolutely no promises that any of it will be good – I can write rich and graceful prose all day long, but I struggle with poetry of any sort. I also know that trying to write a new piece every day will be difficult, so while I commit to writing every day, I will probably only publish once or twice a week. But I do promise to make a year-long commitment to the writing, because sheer repetition will make me a better lyrical writer.

Stay tuned!
