Prodigal of Praise

Child smiling, musical nots

In the grocery store

I passed by a cart

Therein sat a wee child

A prodigal of smiles

Contentedly singing

Someday-One Day

Martin Luther King Jr.

We are still dreaming

We are still rising

We are still trying

To live the creed

Syllabic Verse

“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’
— Martin Luther King, Jr., “I Have a Dream,” delivered August 28, 1963

Prime Time

Pooh Bear Drawing, Shadorma Poem

Sometimes

You need to just sit

Pondering

Not doing

Waiting for inspiration

To bring something

Shadorma

“Ah yes, doing nothing often leads to the very best of something” —Pooh

(I was so inspired while watching the movie “Christopher Robin” recently! I loved the story and found myself pausing the DVD many times to write down various quotes of things that Pooh said. One such quote inspired this poem 😊)
