I Am But One Aug28 by melodylowes I am but One, in crowded sea, carving place for I in We; struggling hard to balance Two, converting Me, to augment You. Share this:FacebookEmailPinterestTwitterLinkedInTumblrLike this:Like Loading... Related
Melody, what a great analogy for needing space and company.
We are complex critters, aren’t we – needing so many different things at different times!
Melody, I nominated you for an Illuminating Blog Award at http://ivonprefontaine.wordpress.com/2012/08/28/illuminating-blog-award/. There really are not any rules. I posted and thanked the person who nominated me, but there is no obligation.
Thank you so much Ivon for your continued support and encouragement! I have recently made the decision to regretfully not accept any more awards – they take me too much time, now that I am back to school! I need to be Mom and teacher first, and that is one way I can pare things back.
I am feeling something similar as I head back into the classroom. I want to do a good job at what I do and time is at a premium.
There are so many demands, aren’t there? As much as I’d love to be Super, I have to hang up my cape and admit my frailties!
I love how the blue of the flowers echo the blue of the garden furniture. I hear a lovely echo in the poem too. ~ Wendy
That’s neat how you picked out those details for yourself! 🙂
Reblogged this on and commented:
Well said. Very gifted poet.
Congratulations, I’ve nominated you for the Beautiful Blogger Award. Please visit my blog to accept award:http://staciegh.wordpress.com/2012/08/28/beautiful-blogger-award-2/ . Thank You!!
Thank you Stacie – but due to time restrictions, I am no longer accepting awards. I really appreciate your nomination, however, and your visits and comments. Happy writing!
This is another one to ponder. Or not–maybe I should just rest and enjoy it!! God bless you–love, Caddo
Thinking is highly overrated…
Amen to that (she said, cynically)!
Smashing last line, Melody! 🙂
Why, thank you! 🙂
Just loved this! You have a special gift! Thank you for blessing us with it!
Thank you so much, Debbie, for you kind encouragement! 🙂
