Balance Consume and Create

April is National/Global Poetry writing month. I am a day behind but will catch up soon. The theme this year is Spirit Poems. Balance is healthy in so many ways. Happiness comes from, in part, our conditions in life but more so from the activities we choose. Balancing activities that consume with that were we create, I believe, is key to a happy spirit.

Balancing Consume and Create

I create an intention for good health
and eat a bowl of strawberries
sweet tart and firm
studded with tiny seeds.
Let us plant seeds
pepper, squash, tomatoes and herbs,
starts for the summer garden.
Upon taking in a book
there is reflection and enrichment
to my story.
There is making with my hands
art in all its forms
from pie to watercolors
and devouring the art of fellows
to inspire more making.
I taste and touch and watch,
but it is what I create that fills me.
