Hello fellow poets!
William Penn once said “Time is what we want the most, but what we use the worst.”
All too often you find yourself exhausted from the hustle of everyday life. As we crawl into bed, we sometimes wonder where the day has gone and why there isn’t any extra minutes to be found. We pack our schedules with to do’s and become frustrated when they are not all accomplished. Before one day is over, we’ve already begun to think about how we will spend the next. Would you agree that we tend to take our days for granted? Do you agree that we strive to just make it through instead of enjoying every minute? I know that’s how it can be for me sometimes, so today I want to slow things down a bit.
Pick one small moment out of your day… one moment that frustrated you or made you smile. Reflect back on a moment that you spent with your children or talked with an old friend. Did you experience a moment of peace or witness an act of kindness? Did you come to a realization about your life or discover something new? Choose one moment out of your day and write a poem about it.
