Plant Bigger Picture Poetry ~ Featuring Adrienne

plant1

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 Adrienne’s poem:

Simultaneously
caught in a trap and safe at home
stuck and free to go
guilty and no guiltier than anyone else…
I wander from room to room
discovering their ancestral treasures –
disinterested in the goings on –
detached,
yet the center of attention.

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.

Bigger Picture Moments {Featuring May}

Every Thursday, the Bigger Picture community comes together to share glimpses of simple, everyday moments which might otherwise be lost in the rush of daily living. Won’t you join us today? Reflect upon something simple — or simply magical — that’s resonated with you this week, then share it with us!

Here’s a look at one of last week’s Bigger Picture Moments, from May at Achieving Clarity.  Head over to her place to read the rest!

On Wednesday of this week I wrote of the importance of celebrating life’s moments when we are in the midst of them because they are transient and we never know when we might  lose them.  Less than two hours after I penned those words I received a call from my husband.  He had fallen ill at work and needed me …

Bigger Picture Moments are being hosted today by Hyacynth of Undercover Mother.  Please visit and share and be in community with us as we learn to really see the moments around us!
