Part of it was that I was so busy revamping our back patio, taking it from an overgrown shed surrounded by concrete to a Tiki-themed patio, lawn, and garden. Woo-hoo!
I felt really guilty about "cheating" on my poetry whenever I had spare time, but then I read this great blog post, "Time to Waste Time," by a lovely woman I met through Literary Mama, and I began to relax. And then the poems began to come. Funny how that works.
