Finding Poems

by Stacey

Last week, my friend Lindsey posted the following quote on her blog.

I’ll tell you a secret: poems hide.
In the bottoms of our shoes, they are sleeping.
They are the shadows drifting across our ceilings the moment before we wake up.
What we have to do is live in a way that lets us find them.

– Naomi Shihab Nye

“What we have to do is live in a way that lets us find them.”

I haven’t been able to get this line out of my head during this crazy, crazy week. And somehow, during power outages and snow storms, school cancellations and delayed openings, nine days with my in-laws and stir crazy pets, I was able to keep my eyes out for the poems. To live in a way that let me find just a few…

Here they are.

An early evening sky

An amazing free spirit

And power workers here from the south, who all afternoon yesterday took breaks from their work to take pictures of their first snow fall.

May you all live this next week in a way that helps you to find your poems.

    BEAUTIFUL. As you know I think about this all the time. I wrote a post a couple of weeks ago that’s going up soon about a quote from Winnie the Pooh that’s in the same theme. Lovely, lovely. xox
