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
