WHY I WRITE A POEM A DAY

In a quest to find more joy in the tedious rhythm of my life as a new mother, I vowed to write a poem every day that year to train myself to observe the world around me. That was 10 years ago, and I never stopped. May this space inspire you to notice the ordinary moments in your own days and find them suddenly bright with wonder.

TODAY’S POEM

The secret to hope

You can’t over-hope.
It’s a renewable resource.
Litter your dreams with it
and watch as it winds
around your vision
of a better future
and pulls it closer
every day.
