The premise behind this day was to give people the opportunity to share a bit of themselves with others using poetry as the vehicle. Of course for the writers, it would be kinda cool to share something that they, themselves wrote but you can always just carry your favorite by anyone in your pocket. How cool, to have a poem at the ready to recite or hand to someone you meet along the way. Perhaps someone needs cheering or you are having coffee with a friend and you want them to hear your latest creation; then whip that poem out and take the floor! (of course if you take the floor, you had better be ready to replace it)
So, I have decided to keep a particular poem in my pocket today. This is from the very first book I ever self-published, Perspective, it’s all about replacing one thought with another. It doesn’t have a title but that’s okay, neither do I.
