January 28, 2011 was the date I last posted a poetry prompt here at A Muse Fuse. I never intended for so much time to elapse. Time and life have a way of getting away from us when we allow ourselves to follow detour after detour. As the months passed, I gave serious thought to forever abandoning A Muse Fuse and The Magnified Muse. But in the last few weeks, I’ve learned that a deeper passion runs through me. The things I truly love are those which flow from my thoughts and transform into words. These are the places I belong. Rejoin me on the journey as I continue my travels through the alphabet, one letter at a time. Picking up where we left off three months ago, we arrive at the letter “L” and our word for today, appropriately enough, is: lessons.
An academic schooling is a tool with which to grow,
but lessons aren’t restricted to those things we learn in books.
We carve an education from the high points and the low,
and our studies teach that life is not as easy as it looks.
