I Am But One

I am but One, in crowded sea,

carving place for I in We;

struggling hard to balance Two,

converting Me, to augment You.

  1. Melody, what a great analogy for needing space and company.

  2. 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.

    Take care,

    Ivon

      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.

  3. 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

      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!
