Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – Prompt #244 – Motivation:  Humility

“If you think yourself to be too great for small tasks, then you are too small for the great ones.”

“Write of humility. Humble in your life or in the world. We are all better for it.”

In our constant struggle
to become better human
beings, we have merely chipped
at the surface. When I meditate,
I feel a humble peace in being
just another square of fabric
in the world’s quilt.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
