I would like to share a favourite poem:
This Is Just to Say
by William Carlos Williams
I have eaten
that were in
you were probably
they were delicious
and so cold
This evokes for me rich visual images, sensory images and even taste. I can imagine the plums so clearly. Reading the poem gives me a brief escape and a break from the humdrum.
ACTION CHALLENGE: This is an unapologetically literary challenge. And those of you who do not see yourselves as literary might well love it too…
Revisit poetry that you have enjoyed in the past or discover a new pleasure. Leaf through an anthology at the library or google search poetry. Find a poem which makes you sense something delicious. Then revisit the poem at times of need and allow it to enrich your life.
