Remembering and Reaching

Family, friends, flowers, the beach, the lake, some sewing, a little writing, lots of good books...not too much blogging. But I sure have been enjoying this summer and getting rejuvenated for a new school year. It's not that I am at a loss for ideas. I think about getting back in the saddle. I check in a few times a week at my favorite blogs and am in awe of those of you that balance much more on a daily basis.

So, today this first Poetry Friday, my thinking veered to my O.L.W. ~ One Little Word for 2011.
There are many ways to reach, many things to reach for, but for me it often seems to come back to balance.
or dance perhaps.

Sometimes baby steps,

sometimes leaps.

Dive in deep

take a chance
Close your eyes
Make a wish

make a splash

or just be still.
You'll find the way

to reach
a balance

Happy Poetry! Happy Friday! Happy Summer! Libby is hosting Poetry Friday today over at A Year of Literacy Coaching.

  1. Love the colors in that quilt! Also love that you have been revisiting your one little word. (I've been thinking about mine too.) Keep on reaching!!
