MY HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH
furrowing my brow
listening to quiet, I
discover I AM
This poem is inspired by three prompts.
First, the new “Music Notes” prompt from Elizabeth. In a nutshell, she’s posting a link to a song on YouTube.com on Tuesdays and our responses will be posted at her site on Thursdays. Her inaugural challenge is Neil Diamond’s song “I Am…I Said.” We were instructed to use it as a jumping off point to write in whichever direction it takes us…as long as our response is 15 words or less. The words “I AM” always remind me of the Lord speaking to Moses.
The second prompt is Margo Roby’s Tuesday Tryouts “Vacation” poem. The challenge, though, was to tell you about my vacation without telling you it was a “what I did on vacation” poem.
And finally, for Day 36, this is also in response to one of the week’s themes over at “100 Days of Summer” (on Facebook): “picture perfect.” That’s what I described, a picture perfect respite from the daily tension, being able to get quiet, and discover more of God and who He created me to be.
