Poetry Friday -- Yes!

Some days are brick walls.

Others are wide open windows.

I much prefer the latter, don't you?

One thing I've come to know is how often I'm the designer and builder of my own walls and windows. We all are.
And it is in leaping, in going for it, in saying yes, that we open up all the possibilities of our lives.

Here's a poem (by Kaylin Haught) that gives us permission to do just that.
Seems right for this new season that is spring...

God Says Yes To Me

Kaylin Haught

I asked God if it was okay to be melodramatic
and she said yes
I asked her if it was okay to be short
and she said it sure is
I asked her if I could wear nail polish
or not wear nail polish
and she said honey
she calls me that sometimes....
