Plant Bigger Picture Poetry ~ Featuring Stephanie


Our new theme for April is PLANT. Whether we’re celebrating the arrival of spring in the evidence of plants all around us, placing something in the ground so it can grow, planting ideas, or planting ourselves, in April we will spend time ruminating on the growth of great things from small beginnings.

Since April is National Poetry month we asked you to stretch yourself and try your hand at some everyday poetry.  {Don’t think you can? Hayacynth explains how everyone is an Everyday Poet}

Today we are featuring a snippet of Stephanie’s poem:

The day begins in darkness,
rain pitter-pattering down
drenching our yard,
spilling into our basement,
and flooding my heart.
I feel it deep inside.
A longing, a waiting,
a thirsting, a quenching,
a needing to be filled.
Read the rest over at Girl of Grace.
