Poetry

Summer on the Blog

Yesterday was the first time since May 14, 2021 that I posted a poem on my instagram feed and on the blog. And I am proud of myself! As we head into a summer of poetry (and my podcast where I’ll share BTS of my poems), I’m hoping to infuse humor, lightheartedness, and a real sense of freedom to enjoy what is working well in our lives.

Of course, I don’t believe in ignoring pain and you’ve read enough of my poetry to know that(!!), but I’m also exhuasted by the doomsday approach oversaturated in poetry. Maybe you are, too? I don’t know, but I think we need to laugh a little more. Notice the good things right in front of us. Let the happy things be happy. Be silly.

So, here’s to a summer of honing my craft, reminding you of the lighter stuff, making you smile and laugh, and giveing words to the good(!!) stories you’re living. I hope you fall in love with this humorous + lighter aproach to poetry.

I post the first of the summer poems on my blog tomorrow, but (inside scoop), I already posted it on my instagram, @sierravfpoetry!

Here’s to fun!

Dusting Off the Podcast (Wooohooo!)

I’m dusting off the podcast soon!β­πŸŽ™πŸŽ‰
After letting it go in my third trimester of pregnancy in May 2020, I picked it up again the following November, but changed the whole feel to be 1) Seasonal. 2) Super laid-back. For now, this is the way I can say YES to podcasting (something people have really enjoyedπŸ‘) without saying no to more important things in my life. Also, I love being laid-back. Pressure is off!! All that said, I recorded an update on Wednesday this week! Which was a surprise even to me.πŸ˜… I mean, I’ve been planning to podcast again and before really getting into a series or season, I’d HAVE to do an update since it’s been a few months! And on Wednesday, I thought, “How about now? Let’s do it.” So I did. And it literally feels like a chat over coffee.β˜• I’m not BACK to everything as usual yet, but I am popping in.πŸŽ‰ So that’s a long way of saying, there’s 20 minutes of #JoyRightHere waiting for you wherever you best love your podcasts!😍
