Poem: Today I’m Drawing Yellow

I’m writing another poetry book. It’s a book of love poems.

No. I’m not in love. Not even close.

But I do have love. I have love for a lot of things and people and places, and if I concentrate on that love, I’m never lonely. If I let it fill me up, it lights up all the dark spaces so even when I’m scared, I know I’ll find my way.

If you think I’m lucky, you’re right. If you think it’s easy, you’re wrong. The worries of the world, mean people, personal problems, Chinese spy balloons…I could go on but I won’t because those things sneak in too easily. Instead, I will make the decision to live my life in love because it will make me stronger. I will draw my life the way I want it to be.

And I will not wait to be in love to write my love poems.

    When the song of the angels uis stilled, when the star in the sky is gone, when the kings and princes are home, when the shepherds are back with their flock, that is when the work of Christmas begins: To find the lost, to heal the broken, to feed the hungry, to release the prisoner, to rebuild the nations, to bring peace among people, to make music in the heart.”
