Sharing an original poem everyday in the month of April.
Happy National Poetry Month!
I spent Saturday at the Claggett Center for the Courage to Teach and Lead Retreat. I found out about this opportunity late on Friday and I was able to participate for the day. It was amazing. Here's a found poem from my day. These words and lines are words I heard and wrote throughout my time with the amazing teachers and leaders at this spectacular location...
bear our history and experiences
Let’s respond with
a kind heart
Listen to what’s being said
behind the words…
fear and anger.
Dig beyond the
Words I will carry with me from this day…
Prayer is a conversation
Moments of wonder in life
Always start with the gratitude
What is sacred?
Transformational, spiritual change
What in our lives do we bow to?
Carrying a notebook is a form of bowing.
From this pivotal experience
