To My WordPress Community


Community (Photo credit: Jeff Kubina)

In this warm community
Embraced by fellow scribes
It’s like I find immunity
From harsher real life tribes

Your friendship and your words
Awake a dream within
Your writings are like birds
About to take to wing

I thank you for your time
I thank you for your heart
The beauty of your rhymes
The dreams that you impart

About Helen

I'm drawn to blogging as a way to share ideas and consider what makes us who we are. Whether it's in our working life or our creativity, expression is a means to connect.

    Wow Helen! I only stumbled on this one just today, and it reminds me so much of the one I wrote one day later! The similarities are eerie and we both cite birds. I don’t think anyone will believe such a coincidence 🙂 Lovely and gracious! I am glad to be linked to a like-minded poet!

    • Thank you, I think the creative process is mysterious and you find sometimes we all think of similar themes at the same time – the beauty being we then do our own take on that. Ah, the mysteries of creativity, it’s wonderful!! 🙂
