If you could send a poem to anyone in the world, who would you send it to?
And, really, is that outdated?
Have you forgotten so quickly that we’re talking about #StoriesOfBeauty?
It’s the most beautiful thing. The Cabina Literaria goes to book events and fairs all over the country, giving people the chance to choose a poem and call someone they love. What a phenomenal way to #MakeTheWorldBetter. The girls got to dedicate poems to their grandmas. (Yep. They do international poem dedications as well!)
So, I’m asking, who would you send a poem to? Who would you want to remind they are loved? Who do you want to reconnect with?
Share peace. Share poems. Connect to someone you love, to someone you haven’t spoken to for a long time, to someone who needs a lift.
Challenge of the day: Call someone you haven’t talked to in a long time. Or send someone a note. Just check in and say, “Hey. You were on my mind.”
On that note, I’m going to share a snippet of a poem with you. (Yes, YOU!)
From THANKS, ROBERT FROST by David Ray:
Thanks, Robert Frost
Do you have hope for the future?
someone asked Robert Frost, toward the end.
Yes, and even for the past, he replied,
that it will turn out to have been all right
for what it was, something we can accept,
mistakes made by the selves we had to be,
not able to be, perhaps, what we wished,
or what looking back half the time it seems
we could so easily have been, or ought…
