Commitment and Poetry

This business of committing to posting a poem a day during National Poetry Month is not so very easy.  Yesterday I totally forgot and tonight I am nearly too tired to think of anything at all profound and clever.  However, a commitment is a serious endeavor, I will put my fatigued brain in gear, and something of use to someone will hopefully result.  Now that I puzzle over this, the solution is to write a poem about those things to which I am committed:




Make a difference in this world.

Enjoy ordinary moments.

Hang in there for the long haul.

Express joy and courage to

be the best possible self.

Make a difference in this world.

Dance to the sound of silence.

Learn something new and

meaningful every day.

Meditate, practice yoga.

Cherish friends and family.

Make a difference in this world.
