I thought about writing my own poem for Random Acts of Poetry, but then my 9-year-old daughter read me these musings on life. It seems she drew the picture first and went from there...
kindness are the
path to wisdom and
wisdom is the path to a
Rain drops peacefully
or sun shines blessedly,
or even both at once.
Flowers sprout up,
bushes grow a
tunnel of freedom
to go to goodness
but still no life

If you would like to write in color by composing a color poem, post and let me know by Thursday, MARCH 5, to be considered for a possible feature and definite links at High Calling Blogs.
An alternate project, also due by Thursday, MARCH 5, would be to try the poem prompt... "I went searching for grace..." This prompt jumped out at me when I read Laura's Stone Crossings book giveaway preview post. Try to set your search in a concrete place... your street, in someone's arms, on a particular riverbank, in a field, whatever. See if you can give us the sights, sounds, smells, textures or tastes of the place and of your search for grace.
