Poetry Day

by sarahartonsherkin


A great group of poetry lovers gathered together in the library last week for Poetry Day.

I recited something assembled quickly and half-prepared, but to my relief seemed to roll off the tongue smoothly with a natural flow…

The Revolution of Everyday Life

Leaving behind old thoughts,

Old habits that don’t serve

To enlighten

The revolution of everyday life.

The blessed beatitudes

That voluntary poverty can bring;

A mind empty

Of  wants and hindrances;

Worldly thoughts that take up room,

But diminished, create

A vital space

For freedom to bloom.
