This Poem-A-Day Challenge has delighted me to no end. Mostly in part due to the inspiration of someone I care a great deal about as a way to celebrate his birthday in a very personal intimate way. Sure I can buy him something, but words as gifts, as prayers as love is the most divine gift I know to give. It is a way to share myself physically and intellectually and spiritually. The other reason is that I am profoundly joyous crafting a poem every day. It's like I've been in a deep sleep and just awoken. Yes, I've crafted poems sporadically for folks, birthdays, weddings, engagements, celebrations of all sorts. But this daily commitment has been so joyous. I look forward to it, listening for the words to come.
