Have you ever read a poem that stimulates your emotions and memories? It happens quite often to me, and is the one reason I enjoy reading poems that speak about self-love, compassion, kindness, and gratitude. Whenever I’m having an off day, I’ll reach for a poem. In some ways it improves my mood, even if only momentarily. Here is one poem that I hope will bring you some joy, or at least a smile on your face as you read it.
If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden."
- Frances Hodgson Burnett
We are confronted with so many options and tasks on any given day. For this reason, we sometimes don't pay attention to what we are doing in the moment. Because poetry often has a way of conveying a message that many can easily appreciate, I would like to share "One Thing At A Time" by M.A.Stodart. It is a poem that speaks to being present and concentrating on what is before you at that moment.
