Announcing the winner of my Kitty Hawk giveaway:
Our esteemed Poetry Friday host, Bridget Magee! Congrats, Bridget!
Two poems intended to soothe the spirit today.
by Jan L. Richardson
That each step
may be a shedding.
That you will let yourself
That when it looks
like you’re going backwards
you may be making progress.
That progress is not the goal anyway,
to the feel of the path on your skin,
to the way it reshapes you
in each place it makes contact,
to the way you cannot see it
until the moment you have stepped out.

What power had I
Before I learned to yield?
Shatter me, great wind:
I shall possess the field.
Wee Words for Wee Ones has the Poetry Friday round-up. Thanks, Bridget!
