It Just Takes One

It just takes one to stand their ground,

determined to do right,

and ripples spread throughout the pond

in waves of  white-capped light.

As breakers swell, and furrows fold,

the undulating tide

will mark the places where the brave

laid comfort-zones aside.


What are you doing to make your world a better place?  It just takes one…

    Ha! I see you changed your header! I hate cold and snow and ice, but in a picture it looks great! I like this too!

      Thanks, Julie. It has been white pretty consistently for the past month, so I thought it fitting to make my blog ‘match’… Winter is my least favourite, so I am on a mission to find all the glory I can in it while I wait for spring! 🙂

  4. Perfect poem for a perfect picture! And truly inspiring…
    Blessings ~ Wendy

    Cool, wintry look on the blog. A fitting poetic tribute to those whose lives of courageous self-giving are poetry.
