Join Delores and me as we count ours. Or do something else poetic with them. One never knows what words will come from one's head until they're on the screen, I find . . .
You can leave a poem in the comments on either of our blogs, or post on your own blog. If you do the latter, please leave a comment so we know where to find you.
I was stymied by this week's topic up until the last minute -- again -- but then, as I thought about it in terms of what I wish for other people (rather than what I have myself), it fell into place. The wishes are loosely based on Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, which you can read more about here if you are interested. The sad thing is that so many people around the world, and close to home, do not have even the most basic of their needs fulfilled.
May you have clean water to drink
And enough food to eat
May you have safety from harm
And a roof to shelter you from weather
May you have good health, and if you do not
Then may you have courage to keep on
May you have people to love, and people who love you
(Both fur-less and furry kinds, as you prefer)
May you have work that is meaningful to you
And beauty in your life
And may you become all that you are capable of being
May someone remember you with fondness
When you are gone
In the meantime, I hope the world treats you well.
