All We Create

A quick poem for a quick moment…The summer has vanished rapidly, as time moves ever quicker, hurtling us toward timelessness, I suppose.  Lots of photos and ponderings and poems have been captured this summer, and yet the choosing of and organizing them into a post has been my latest procrastination.  So in the meantime, as I continue typing the manuscript that will one day be actual volumes of poetry, I find little gems along the way.  Here’s one that felt right for the moment and themes I’ve been traveling through this week.  Cheers to honoring your creative spirit and claiming your worth in the world!

Open the door, it’s not too late

Clearing the floor, filling the plate

Stand on the shores, feeling the wake

Of life you adore, don’t hesitate

Prosperity is more than money in the bank

Can’t keep score when the fields are blank

Life is more than just building the tank

Love is at the core of all we create.
