"DEAR REALITY"

Dear Reality,

I know I'm one of many. Here's where a lot of us are telling our stories. Some are in the forms of poetry and monologues, some come in varieties of prose.

I can say I'm a writer for life. It's been my true love since I was a little kid, although I started pursuing it as a more serious career recently. I'm also a part-time English teacher and a freelance translator. My other regular activities include attending a writers' club weekly gathering in town, monthly Poetry Night, singing, catching up with events, concerts, and movies, and life as it is.

"MONDAY MORNING CRAZINESS"
3/5/2012

I woke up this morning,
an urban zombie half awake.
I had no idea what I was thinking.
I only feared showing up late.

My fragmented thoughts
scattered and regrouped
like magnetic marbles on the floor,
as I headed toward that door.

What did I see?
Oops, I made a mistake!
I showed up way too early.
Now I'm rewarded with this long break.

Heh.
What a strange way
just to start today.
What else can I say?

Maybe I'm a workaholic.
A lot can make me fretful and tick.
With caffeine-fuelled energy,
I haven't been sleeping well lately.

Now I'm going to relax a bit
before the real hours of my shift...

R.
