Poetry Shared

A friend of mine, Claudia Greenwood, shared one of her beautiful poems with me. It so struck my heart that I had to share it with all of you. This is the world I choose to live in.

Children of the World                                    
They were
truly children of the world
raising arms,
clasping hands,
celebrating their many colors,
many languages,
many histories.
They sang with the joy
of shared life experiences
in the Colorado village
that is raising them,
salad bowl of our country
where they mix without noticing,
without realizing the promise
they bring to the future:
a perfect blend
locally grown
but of transplanted roots,
salad extraordinaire,
these children
of a better world.
Claudia (Spring, 2013)
