I am in awe of this poet, whom I had the great pleasure of finding via the talented WordPress Community. Sharon Bonin-Pratt is her name! Hats off to Sharon!
Sharon Bonin-Pratt's Ink Flare
Speak even when you are speechless.
Bellow when you are crying.
Whisper when you are lost.
Open your palms when words fail.
Pray when you are harrowed.
If nothing grows, plant weeds.
Reach out when there’s nothing left to do.
Hold others tight during a quake.
Take the hands of those who stand apart.
Give when your account is empty.
Share everything when nothing remains.
If fish die, water the oceans.
Imagine while you dream.
Rock while the baby sleeps.
Cradle when the aged weep.
Plan the future on the last page of the calendar.
Climb atop the barricades.
If you waver, stand on quicksand.
Awaken on the cusp of the new day.
Cross over as the piers collapse.
March on two broken feet.
Dance on your knees and elbows.
Crawl on the flesh around your ribs.
If you wear rags, scour the mud.
Avoid flight when evil approaches.
