Today I'll try to be the best I can be
because there really is only one ME.
I'll work really hard to learn and to grow
because I'm the only me that I know.
I'll read a book, write a poem or three
I'm the only one who knows how to be me.
When we play together, you will see
You can be you and I will be me.
This is the start of a poem. Where it is going, I don't know yet. But, it is Saturday and that makes it a play day for me--a day to feed my creativity well. What will you do today to feed yourself? Try to write something today even if it is only a shopping list or a to-do list (it is often easy to turn those into poems.)
Today is the birthday of Theodore Roethke (my birthday poet) and Ralph Waldo Emerson. Perhaps you can find some time today to read some of their poetry.
Have a great day and write soon.
