I became an artist this year
a poet, a writer, a zentangle doodler.
Though I’ve written for years
and doodled as well
This year I finally did it.
I committed to practice each day.
365 days in a row (and still going)
wordsmithing poems and honing my craft
with doodles slipped in just for fun
I transformed into an artist this year.
Not through fame or good fortune
or book signing gigs.
But by just showing up and living the magic
of daily performing my art,
I became an artist this year.
