On the Porch with My Spin

a poem about a laptop and places to write

© Dennett — our back porch

I used to write mostly in the dark extra bedroom,
lovely but too shadowy and dim,
a room with things to sort and pack and decide about
and I don’t want neglected tasks whispering as
I create and ignore what needs to be done.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
