101 things in 1001 days. Number 32: Write a poem.











My Creativity

There´s this thing inside of me, part of me.
You may see it glowing.
If you´re moving along too quickly,
then you probably can´t tell.

For a long time, I didn´t notice it.
I was busy with other things.
Having kids, teaching, living – sort of.
Worrying, running, suffering.

In my relationships, my jobs, my homes.
It was there, glowing.
But I was moving along too quickly.
I just couldn´t tell.

These days I move slower, I live slower.
I walk with my eyes and ears open.
I love with my heart open and let what´s inside out,
like rays of sunlight.
I wish that everyone´s creativity be alive in them and beyond them, joining together to brighten this world.

Claudia,
Thank you for pasting on my blog. I think we have led parallel lives. You are younger and I have 2 sons and a daughter. But I have done much of the same work as you have. Do we all have paths that take turns and intersect at some point?

Your poem is amazing. So beautiful and inspiring.
Best,
Janet
