How are you changing the world?

My first thought is about small things that add together, and truly make a difference. Some of my small poems to share today.

Earth Day was founded on April 22, 1970, by Gaylord Nelson from Wisconsin, USA.  You can learn more here.

used books
new for me
light on old
and new leaves
of a house plant

soon the garden
will begin in small ways

  1. I really appreciate what you said about small things making a difference–that rings true in my heart/spirit. It reminds me what Mother Theresa said–something about how we’re not asked or expected to feed the whole world, just one person at a time. As God leads, I find it very gratifying to do “small things”…which sometimes turn out to be BIG in the lives of others. Blessings to you ❀
