  1. I find writing poetry to be very relaxing. It helps me focus my mind and to ignore distractions. If I am having trouble focusing on the day’s projects, I will take time to work on the poetry I prepare for every Sunday. I have found that it is an amazing way to bring peace to the mind.

  2. Thanks so much for posting that link:) I’ve never considered submitting a poem before but I just did my first! How fun!! Hope it’s okay to share it here:)

    Where Will My Apples Fall?

    One day my little apples will fall from their tree.
    And I know as their daddy, their tree would be me.
    So how far they fall is up to me as their dad.
    But I thought that depends on the dad that I had?

    I truly believed like my dad I would be,
    Because the apple just ALWAYS falls close to his tree.
    I thought to be a good dad I did NOT get to choose,
    And the fall from my tree left a deep nasty bruise.

    Then I found something magic that makes bruises fade,
    Which has allowed me to live into the choice that I made,
    To be the very best dad for my boys I can be,
    Meant healing the bruises that were deep inside me.

    To live the best life that I know we can live,
    Meant experiencing the power of what it means to forgive.
    To know my dad loved me deep down in his heart,
    But not knowing how to show it was a great place to start.

    The fear of becoming “MY dad,” I now clearly see,
    Has faded completely, I’m now a POWERFUL TREE!
    So with love and compassion I can remember my dad
    And now I can feel grateful for the dad that I had.

    I found to be a good dad I really do get to choose,
    And through the magic of forgiveness there’s no longer a bruise.
    And now with two bright healthy apples who mean the whole world to me.
    I’ll be so proud if my apples fall close to their tree!
