This week is another Poetry Party!   And I especially want to point out this poem over at Left Turn at Joy.   Christine’s offering is far better than my own…..

I once waited
for the freeing lift
of flight
I thought that
if I chased it far enough
ran fast enough
threw myself into the wind often enough
one day I would

I see now
that sometimes
when I’m focused enough,
not on flight, but on
the Kingdom work in front of me
I and those around

I still may fly
but in this time,
I know what it is to live
with feet not touching the ground

Oh, and apparently I missed Blog for Choice Day this year….last year I was more on top of things
