Through my writing and painting, I feel a call to service.
My blog is a virtual soapbox where I get to express what’s on my mind. I try not to be overtly political. That said, the personal is truly political, so my views are woven through what I write about or might be reflected in what I paint. This can’t be helped if we are authentic in our expression. What we write, paint or draw is in the context of the times and circumstances in which we live…is that true?
#5 in the hexalogy of poems
Earth does not need us to advocate for her.
She has ambitions that outshine our own.
Though it could help us if we hear her roar
she does communicate if we would hone…
to practice connection daily is wise
to stop and listen and learn her true ways
it’s in the wind where she speaks and sighs
“My children, you are numbering your days.”
“Is waking a painful process” you ask
rubbing the sleep from your lightblind eyes
surfacing from slumber a painful task?
Though not to awake could be your demise.
She rocks the cradle and out you will fall
let it be because you hear her sweet call. (to life!)
Do you have a favorite fictional or nonfictional character (in books or films) who exemplifies a “call to service” by the way he or she lives her life? (It could be Wonder Woman.) What qualities in this character do you most admire? Why?
