Poem 1 4/06/10

I am happy to be alive.

I am happy that tomorrow I have another day to appreciate the greatness in even the smallest things.  The world brings us gifts wrapped in dandelions preparing to set sail, blow me a kiss and send me flying forward to carry your dreams to reality, kiss me softly like God’s gentle hand brushing away every tear I’ve cried for dreams not realized, but I finally realizing that the horizon is my own limitation, flatlining my own dreams not seeing the miracle that are birthed every time I open my eyes, every time I see a single blade of grass, kissing the sun through a concrete nightmare, I see my own small self reaching up towards the sun, showering in the rays of my own glorious light, shine bright…. light the sky with your life, what are you waiting for..

NaPoWriMo: Write, Write, Write…

So, I was just doing my usual Facebook surfing when I came across the NaPoWriMo (No, this is not Diddy’s new name).  Basically this is National Poetry Month, and the idea is to write a poem a day for the entire month.  You can visit http://www.napowrimo.net to see the list of amazing poets participating.  So, being that I end up on the latter end of the curve, I am now 5 poems behind.  Which means I must now double up on a few days.  I learned that Hafiz wrote a poem a day for 40 years, so on those standards I am really behind.

Stay tuned my lovelies, here comes the poetry!!!
