Awarded to the poem "today" ~The Most Far-Sighted, ~Lovely Blogger, ~the Most Soulful

today

today’s journey
should begin with a
rushandflurryand
hecticmovement
but i refuse. 
the crazed mob of
achievement will not
hold me today.
i will instead, hold
the newly born thought
of peace on earth, and
all the crickets
too.

what? you say that
isn’t new?  well, it
should be.

~(c) Terri Stewart, December 2010

Random thought for the day:  Isn't it odd how refuse (say no) and refuse (trash) are the same word?  I feel something fun coming from that.

    When i visit a blog, chances are that I see that the construction is poor and the writting bad.On the other hand,I have to say that you have done a good job here.

      Thank you, Lizbeth. I never know if it is good in my own head or if it is actually worth letting other people read.
