#NPM17 - Poem 23 of 30 - Tiny Shoes


         "Poetry is frosted fire." – J. Patrick Lewis

                                               TINY THINGS.  







   
           Tiny Shoes

I have a pair of baby shoes
worn by Grandpa long ago.
His mother kept them tucked away
in the years she watched him grow,
remembering his baby steps
toddling first around a room,
then walking out, no, running
to life’s dreams about to bloom.
Now I keep her treasure safe,
remember bygone hours.
To me, he wore much bigger shoes
when we walked among the flowers.

#NPM17 - 22/30 - Celebrating Earth Day



Tweet @ #CelebrateLu

         Celebrating with Ruth Ayres and others at Discover Play Build. And starting the final week of April-- poetry month. 




           See all the poetic events this month in the sidebar.  My goal for Poetry Month: 
TINY THINGS.  


   "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their good freshness into you, and the storms their energy while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.  ~John Muir


         I celebrate Earth Day, and those who are fighting against changing the plans that have been put into place to help keep our planet safe for our children.

  


one chickadee
on daily rounds —
morning glory

#PoetryFriday #NPM17 - poem 21 of 30


         Thanks to Tabatha Yeatts at The Opposite of Indifference who is hosting today.  See all the poetic events in the sidebar.



          "Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance". – Carl Sandburg
       My goal for Poetry Month: TINY THINGS. My choices may surprise you, and I'm excited to write, share, and read how everyone writes to meet their special goals for celebrating poetry month.  
        There is nothing nicer than having a lilac shrub in my garden, and nothing sweeter than smelling them and remembering rooms filled with lilacs when I grew up. I researched them, learning that the usual ones we see often are Syringa vulgaris, or common lilac
