This morning’s Blog Challenge was a challenge
The topic: a talent of me
So I pondered, speculated, contemplated
And uncovered an affection for writing poetry.
As I grew older, married and had children
Dr. Seuss entertained my children, three
Spinning silly stories in rhyming fascination
Enchanting them in nonsensical cadency
Yet amid Seuss’s entertaining alliterations
We discovered hidden lessons truer than true
He spoke wisdom through his wacky little verses
Imparting life’s little principles in simple view.
I aspire to be like this lyrical writer
Illuminating pearls of truth to listening hearts
Motivating them to know what really matters
And illuminating the proper place to start.
