Welcome to week 11 of my challenge to read at least one poem a week during 2023. I’m actually averaging well over one poem a week so it feels nice to be an over-achiever for once 😃😃
This week I’ve finished reading ‘these are the words‘ by Nikita Gill and for my chosen poem this week, I’ve picked this one which again, is about the fact that we are good enough.
Is not an opportunity to improve yourself.
Some days are just there for you to accept yourself
and look at the clouds.
This too is growth.
This too is rising.
The flowers do it everyday
and make the world more beautiful
just by being there.
So do you.
There is tomorrow.
This has echoes for me of the bible passage where Jesus talks about the lilies in the field and that also is about not worrying too much over things. I hope that everyone can find some time to just rest and look at the clouds today.

I love this one. I like the message of not having to do everything at once.
This is beautiful!
Another very relevant one; Its sad but also true that we need to reinforce that sometimes its ok to just be.
