Excerpt From A Poem By Naomi Shihab Nye -

Poems hide. In the bottoms of our shoes,
they are sleeping. They are the shadows
drifting across our ceilings the moment
before we wake up. What we have to do
is live in a way that lets us find them.

Once I knew a man who gave his wife
two skunks for a valentine.
He couldn't understand why she was crying.
"I thought they had such beautiful eyes."

And he was serious. He was a serious man
who lived in a serious way. Nothing was ugly
just because the world said so. He really
"liked" those skunks. So, he re-invented them
as valentines and they became beautiful.
At least, to him. And the poems that had been hiding
in the eyes of skunks for centuries
crawled out and curled up at his feet.

Maybe if we re-invent whatever our lives give us
we find poems. Check your garage, the odd sock
in your drawer, the person you almost like, but not quite.
And let me know.
The talented Ms. Nye will be right here in Todos Santos May 11-13th to lead the Fourth Annual Todos Santos Poetry Workshop and to help you find those poems. Come join us! Creativity is a terrific antidote to fear. - Janet Howey, janethowey [-at-] yahoo.com, www.fpif.org/fpiftxt/5519, 612-169-4252, Todos Santos
