In celebration of National Poetry Month, I am inviting several poet friends to join me in my daily endeavor of paying poetic attention to the world. This week I am sharing the practice with dear friend Amy Tingle of The Creativity Caravan. Follow her on Instagram at @tingle for daily doses of inspiration, creativity, shenanigans and community based delight.
so much sky
and the ground full of trouble.
i’m scanning the horizon
for a prayer big enough
to lay over this land
and make a difference,
like a warm spring rain
that finally takes
that last patch of snow.

at the end.
The rusty patched bumblebee.
Fresh concentration camps in Chechnya.
We are scraping the sky. All our wells have run dry.
Please, can we begin again?
