A Gift From the Sky


I don’t have a problem blogging or writing stories and sharing it all. Poetry, on the other hand, is entirely different. Allen Ginsberg was right about that, for sure. Poetry forces you to bare your soul, and it often makes me uncomfortable. Today, I’m forcing myself to be a little uncomfortable by sharing a poem I wrote a few years ago. Why? Because, as I try to teach my students, sometimes we have to step out of our comfort zone and do something…different.

Gift from the Sky

Sometimes something magical happens,

And you can’t explain why.

From Heaven above

Comes a gift from the sky.

A friend all your own,

Love tried and true,

A gift comes along—

And it’s entirely for you.
