What IS My Job? Revolutionary Blogging Free Verse

May 30, 2014

People ask “What do you do?”
As I ponder,
I think of life stories.

I read a young girl’s poem
and move her family to tears.
I take a husband’s writing
and change his wife’s life.
I reformat a grandma’s funny ditty
and create a “What is a Grandparent” model.
I list “things to do at the Lake”
and make an old man weep.
I dance, top down, music up
and bring smiles to weary travelers.
I comment on a friend’s lament
and remind her of a brush with greatness.
I edit a colleague’s cultural rebuttal
and give her courage to share her voice.
I argue, gently, with my daughter
and uplift and inspire others who suffer.
I take people on walks and floats and rides
and make them see what they’ve been blind to.
I express my feelings and observations
and invite others to relish the Spirit.
I see how people write and draw and express
and let them say “WOW! I did THAT!?!?!”

I, I, I and I see
with eyes
others haven’t yet opened
and give them strength
and insight
and courage
and power
to change the world.

Let Your Voice Shine On! Revolutionary Blogging Rhyming Haiku

January 31, 2012

My niece has a Facebook page and website called “The Shine Project”.   (also at www.myshineproject.com). Today she asked readers to comment on what we were doing to “Be the Change We Want to See in the World”. In response, I wrote this summary of what I’d done to “Be the Change”. Then I improv’d this blogging rhyming haiku:

This morning I wrote (again) in my blog (cyranowriter.wordpress.com). Since the Inauguration, when I started my goal of writing a prose or poem thought a day, I’ve written more than 2500 pieces.  I’ve discovered my voice. More importantly, I’ve helped others “Shine” by encouraging them to discover THEIR writing and creative voices.

You have your own voice./

Today, and daily, make the/

choice. Have your words heard.

OR

make the/

choice to have it heard.
